Students get knowledge in practical applications of radiation and photochemical methods in environmental protection, syntheses of inorganic materials and other applications of photochemistry. Moreover, they get knowledge of chemical dosimetry and actinometry.

Requirements:

1.Basic course of nuclear chemistry.

2.Basic course of ionising radiation detection.

3.Fundamentals of radiation chemistry

Syllabus of lectures:
Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Fricke and Fricke-Hart dozimeters

2. Ceric sulphate dosimeter

3. Ferrioxalate actinometry

4. Iodide-iodate actinometry

5. Radiation- and photo-reduction of metal ions

6. Photochemical preparation of cuprous oxide

7. Photochemical preparation of zinc peroxide
