Synopsis:

In the introduction, nuclear methods and their basic principles are generally classified. It is followed by explanation of the specific features of working methods in radiochemistry. The following lectures introduce separately physical principles and practical applications of radiochronometry, methods based on chemical, biological and physical effects of ionizing radiation, indicator methods, isotope exchange reactions and isotopic effects. The most important technical and industrial applications of radionuclides are presented.

Requirements:

Knowledge of nuclear chemistry and physics on the level of a basic university course.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Classification of nuclear (radionuclide) methods, principles of their

application.

2. Working methods in radiochemistry, manipulation with radioactive materials.

3. Radiochronometric methods - U-He, U-Pb, K-Ar, ionium, Rb-Sr, Re-Os, Cl, 14C,

3H, thermoluminescent.

4. Methods based on chemical, biological and physical effects of ionizing

radiation - radiation-chemical technology.

5. Technical and industrial application of radionuclides, dosimetric and

radiographic methods.

6. Indicator (tracer) methods - history, classification, review of applications.

7. Isotopic and non-isotopic indication - conditions, indicator properties,

indication techniques.

8. Isotope exchange reactions - classification, kinetics (according to McKay).

9. Mechanism of exchange processes.

10. Methods applied in studying isotopic exchange.

11. Isotopic effects - theory, classification.

12. Evaluation and utilization of isotopic effects.

Study Objective:

The course Application of Radionuclides 1 provides its students a basic knowledge of applications of nuclear methods and radionuclides in both scientific research and technical and industrial practice. The students will recap physical principles of the individual applied phenomena and get acquainted with conditions and examples of technical realization of the pplications based on these methods.

Students will acquire competence in effective application of nuclear methods and radionuclides in both scientific research and technical and industrial practice.
