Nuclear chemistry is the sub branch of chemistry dealing with radioactivity, nuclear processes, for example nuclear transmutation, and nuclear properties. It is the chemistry of radioactive elements such as the actinides, radium and radon together with the chemistry related with equipment (such as nuclear reactors) which are intended to perform nuclear processes. It involves the corrosion of surfaces and the behavior under conditions of both normal and abnormal operation (such as during an accident). An important area is the behavior of objects and materials after being placed into a nuclear waste storage or disposal site. Chemical effects resulting from the absorption of radiation within living animals, plants, and other materials are studied in nuclear chemistry. Production and use of radioactive sources for a range of processes are also studied in nuclear chemistry which includes radiotherapy in medical applications, the use of radioactive tracers within industry, science and the environment, and the use of radiation to modify materials such as polymers.
