Nuclear chemistry is the study of nuclear reactions, with an emphasis on their uses in chemistry and their effects on biological systems. Nuclear chemistry affects our lives in many ways, particularly in energy and medical applications. For example, radioactive elements can be used as therapeutic and diagnostic tools
- At the end of the course the students are expected to be able to :
- 1. Describe the natural radioactivity, nuclear systematic and reactions, radioactive decay processes, stellar nucleosynthesis, applications of radioactivity.
- 2. Emphasize nuclear and radiochemical methods applied to chemical analyses in the physical and biological sciences.
