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.
