Summary

Summary

A thorough introduction to the essential topics of nuclear chemistry. With clarity and illustrative examples, it covers nuclear structure and stability, types of radioactivity and nuclear reactions, and the processes of nuclear fission and fusion. This edition offers clearer and more up-to-date coverage of the subject and incorporates entirely new material as well. New to this edition: a detailed account of nuclear magnetic resonance; coverage of the differences and limitations of the Gamov-Teller and Fermi selection rules and examples of the earliest nuclear reactions in the cosmos. Special attention is paid to the study of magnetic moments of elementary particles and nuclei. Features numerical examples with answers and a unique and helpful inclusion of historically important and interesting events.
