Exercise is focused to practical carrying out of various radioanalytical methods from determination of solubility constant over radiometric titrations to determination of various radionuclides in the environment. It also includes substoichiometric diulution analysis, radioimmunological, rentgenfluorescence, and neutron activation analyses.


1. Practical exercises in nuclear chemistry

2. Exam or enrolment in Radioanalytical methods

3. Entrance test
