Written by established experts in the field, Modern Nuclear Chemistry 2nd Edition features in-depth discussions of proven scientific principles, current trends, and applications of nuclear chemistry to the sciences and engineering.

  • Provides up-to-date coverage of the latest research and examines the theoretical and practical aspects of nuclear and radiochemistry
  • Adds discussion of math tools and simulations to demonstrate various phenomena, new chapters on Nuclear Forensics, Nuclear Medicine, and Particle Physics, and updates to all other chapters
  • Presents the basic physical principles of nuclear and radiochemistry in a succinct fashion, requiring no basic knowledge of quantum mechanics
  • Includes additional in-chapter sample problems with solutions to help students

Building on the legacy of its successful predecessor, this revision of Modern Nuclear Chemistry 2e brings together a detailed and rigorous perspective on both the  practical and theoretical aspects of this rapidly evolving field.

Requiring no previous knowledge of quantum mechanics and written at a level suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in science and engineering, this book is designed to be used as a textbook and a reference for practicing scientists and engineers. Extensive appendices facilitate quick reference, and the inclusion of advanced materials and references appeals to those who desire a deeper immersion in the subject.

Reviews of 1st edition: “…an excellent resource for libraries and laboratories supporting programs requiring familiarity with nuclear processes …” (CHOICEAND “… an authoritative, comprehensive but succinct, state-of-the-art textbook ….” (The Chemical Educator)
