The use of terbium instead of europium resulted in approximately a 30-50% enhancement in the analytical signal, so terbium ions were used for further experiments.
In addition, Terbium provided a dedicated analyst on the Terbium side.
From the study analysis it follows that petroleum fluids are the factor of isomorphic capacity and environment changes, particularly for terbium ([Tb.sup.4+]),' for which the solvation of oil and gas hydrocarbons by organic acids leads to the possibility of its interaction with magnesium ([Mg.sup.2+]) and calcium ([Ca.sup.2+]), respectively, with neodymium ([Nd.sup.3+]) in the case of heterovalent isomorphism.
