Department of Chemistry

In 2012, Y-12 requested that UT reinstitute the Chemistry Department radiochemistry class as a special offering. The following class was jointly or­ganized by the departments of Nuclear Engineering and Chemistry, and taught by George Schweitzer (Chemistry) during the 2012 summer session. It is in­tended that this class will become a standing offer­ing.

CHEM 505 Special Topic: Radiochemistry
Introduction to nuclear and radiochemistry. Principles of radioactive decay, radiochemical separations, and ra­diochemical measurements. Nuclear cross-sections and isotope production methods. Applications of nuclear and radiochemical techniques in medicine, environment, and industrial applications.
