About this Book
This new edition of the best-selling handbook gives a complete and concise description of the latest knowledge on nuclear and radiochemistry as well as their applications in the various fields of science. It is based on over 40 years experience in teaching courses and research.
The book is aimed at all researchers seeking sound knowledge about the properties of matter, whether chemists, physicists, medical doctors, mineralogists or biologists. All of them will find this a valuable source of information.
Research in radiochemistry includes: Study of radioactive matter in nature, investigation of radioactive transmutations, chemistry of radioelements etc. Applications include: Radionuclides in geo- and cosmochemistry, dating by nuclear methods, radioanalysis, Mössbauer spectroscopy and related methods, behavior of natural and man-made radionuclides in the environment, dosimetry and radiation protection.
All the subjects are presented clearly and comprehensibly, and in a logical sequence, avoiding detailed derivations of equations. The relevant information is compiled in tables and the recent edition of the multi-colored Karlsruhe 'Chart of the Nuclides' has also been included.
Clearly a standard work by an author with extensive experience in research and teaching.
