Book Notes from Radiochemistry Society
-- Radiochemistry and Nuclear Chemistry
by Jan Rydberg, Jan-Olov Liljenzin, Gregory R. Choppin
(Hardcover, 728 pages)

Review by: Larry Burchfield, PhD, Radiochemistry Society Faculty

This book is well written in a very readable style. It is logical in its approach and covers a wide variety of topics within the nuclear sciences. It should appeal to the serious scholar of radiochemistry at both the undergraduate or postgraduate level. It is also worthy of note that the authors have dedicated the book to Nobel Laureate Glenn T. Seaborg.

The new edition of a well-known, respected text in the specialized field of nuclear chemistry includes an interactive website with testing and evaluation modules based on exercises in the book.

Although the text does not cover practical radiometric separations in great detail, it does provide the reader with a strong overview of this important field of science.
