#### Abstract

For efficient micro scale syntheses of Rose $Bengal-^{131}I$, $Hippuran-^{131}I$, and $H.S.A.-^{131}I$, the dependence of labelling yields on pH, on salt contents, and on the volume of buffer solution in the reaction mixtures as well as the reaction apparatus were studied. pH of 5.6 was optimum for preparation of both Rose $Bengal-_{131}I$ and Hippuran $-^{13}I$ but pH of 8.5 was optimum for preparation of $H.S.A.-^{131}I$. Salt in the reaction mixtures hindered drastically the formation of $Hippuran-^{131}I$ but it slightly increased the labelling yield of H.S.A.. The compactly closed reaction vessels were effective for preparations of both Rose $Bengal-^{131}I$and $Hippuran-^{131}I$ in small volume. Thereupon, the labelling procedures were modified to bring about higher labelling yields and better reproducibilities. By these newly established procedures, the labelling yields of Rose $Bengal-^{131}I$ and $Hippuran-^{131}I$ could be increased even with the home-produced sodium $iodide-^{131}I$ solution containing reducing agent.
