Nuclear Chemistry Lecture
Nuclear chemistry, the study of properties and reactions of atomic nuclei, is a topic of high societal importance. Due to the incredible strength and long-term radiation effects of atomic weapons, 190 countries worldwide have joined the International Non-Proliferation Treaty, which aims to prevent the spread of weapons technology, disarm weapons stockpiles, and promote peaceful uses of nuclear technology such as nuclear power and medicine. Nuclear power plants operate in 30 countries worldwide, and approximately 20% of electricity generated in the United States comes from nuclear reactions. Some people consider nuclear energy a “clean” source of electricity because it does not emit air pollutants or the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. However, drawbacks of nuclear power include the need for a long-term waste disposal plan and the potential for serious accidents such as the Chernobyl plant in Ukraine in 1986 and the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan in 2011. Although radiation from nuclear accidents is a public health concern, nuclear medicine uses radioactive isotopes to diagnose and treat conditions ranging from appendicitis to cancer. In this chapter we’ll study various aspects of nuclear reactions including changes in atomic nuclei, the energy of nuclear reactions, and rates of radioactive decay.
It is not a secret clear that Topic of Nuclear Chemistry is very important in Chemistry.
