This paper presents my comment on the published article, studies on effective decomposition of monazite minerals by variety of phosphate fluxes for simple and direct determination of uranium by LED Fluorimeter. Monazite is a refractory REE-mineral. These REE-bearing minerals contain inclusions of monazite/xenotime. The findings have previously published elsewhere without proper cross referencing /justification in the cited manuscript. It constitutes citation manipulation including plagiarism as well as scientific misconduct. A separate publication and claim by authors dealing with uranium determination in monazite by pulsed fluorimetry (LED fluorimeter) has no novelty/ originality/improvements in the manuscript. Monazite sample decomposition using concentrated sulphuric will be the best option for uranium measurement in such matrices using laser/LED fluorimetry, as it eliminates matrix matching of calibration standards.
