This collection of twenty articles reviews the interaction between matter and high energy radiation (from electrons, other charged particles, xrays, and gammarays). It also provides a detailed, scholarly account of the status of current research. The first section of the book covers the principles and concepts that lie behind radiant energy deposition in chemical systems, considers the physics and physico-chemical consequences of radiation-matter interaction, and describes the instrumentation employed for quantitative studies. Subsequent sections discuss areas that are of fundamental importance such as theoretical approaches to energy deposition, track structure, and electron solvation. The final chapters recount aspects of radiation interaction with synthetic macromolecules, biopolymers, microorganisms and mammalian cells, concluding with a contribution on radiation processing and sterilization of biological materials.

This book presents the most recent research on the 40Ar/39Ar method of radioactive dating of rocks. The focus is on applying the method to geological studies, with an emphasis on the interpretation of results. The technique has enjoyed considerable success in dating extraterrestrial materials, and more recently has been successfully applied to problems related to the thermal history of the earth.

Radiochemistry or Nuclear Chemistry is the study of radiation from an atomic or molecular perspective, including elemental transformation and reaction effects, as well as physical, health and medical properties.
This revised edition of one of the earliest and best known books on the subject has been updated to bring into teaching the latest developments in research and the current hot topics in the field. In order to further enhance the functionality of this text, the authors have added numerous teaching aids that include an interactive website that features testing, examples in MathCAD with variable quantities and options, hotlinks to relevant text sections from the book, and online self-grading texts.
As in the previous edition, readers can closely follow the structure of the chapters from the broad introduction through the more in depth descriptions of radiochemistry then nuclear radiation chemistry and finally the guide to nuclear energy (including energy production, fuel cycle, and waste management).
New edition of a well-known, respected text in the specialized field of nuclear/radiochemistry
Includes an interactive website with testing and evaluation modules based on exercises in the book
Suitable for both radiochemistry and nuclear chemistry courses

Brand: A Mozumder
This book describes the physical and chemical effects of radiation interaction with matter. Beginning with the physical basis for the absorption of charged particle radiations, Fundamentals of Radiation Chemistry provides a systematic account of the formation of products, including the nature and properties of intermediate species. Developed from first principles, the coverage of fundamentals and applications will appeal to an interdisciplinary audience of radiation physicists and radiation biologists. Only an undergraduate background in chemistry and physics is assumed as a prerequisite for the understanding of applications in research and industry.
- Provides a working knowledge of radiation effects for students and non-experts
- Stresses the role of the electron both as a radiation and as a reactant species
- Contains clear diagrams of track models
- Includes a chapter on applications
- Written by an expert with more than thirty years of experience in a premiere research laboratory
- Culled from the author's painstaking research of journals and other publications over several decades

|Food Irradiation Technologies: Concepts, Applications and Outcomes (Food Chemistry, Function and Analysis)
Lowest new price: $201.54
Lowest used price: $248.71
List price: $237.00
Food preservation by irradiation is gaining recognition as a technology that is more environmentally benign than other current processes such as post-harvest chemical fumigation, it has less impact on thermally sensitive compounds than thermal decontamination technologies such as hot water or steam, and the technology is more accessible and cheaper. As the technical and economic feasibility, as well as the level of consumer acceptance, have increased its use has been growing fast.
This comprehensive book is a useful reference for food technologists, analytical chemists and food processing professionals, covering all aspects of gamma, electron beam and X-ray food irradiation, its impact on food matrices and microorganisms, legislation and market aspects. It is the first book to cover control and structural analysis in food irradiation and, being written by leading experts in the field, addresses the current global best practices. It contains updated information about the commercial application of food irradiation technology, especially regarding the type of radiation based on food classes and covers dosimetry, radiation chemistry, food decontamination, food quarantine, food processing and food sterilization.
