One may also ask, what is phosphorus 32 used for? Chromic phosphate P 32 is used to treat cancer or related problems.

Likewise, people ask, how is phosphorus 32 produced?
In the laboratory, P-32 can be produced (even as an experiment with students) using the S-32 (n, p) P-32 reaction with fast neutrons. A sample of pressed elemental sulfur is placed close to a neutron source for several days. After that, the sulfur is washed with boiling water.
