Radiochemistry and Nuclear Chemistry theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Chemical Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.
The content of the Theme on Radiochemistry and Nuclear Chemistry provides the essential aspects and a myriad of issues of great relevance to our world such as: Isotope Effects, Isotope Separation and Isotope Fractionation; Radiometric Dating and Tracing; Radiochemical Techniques; Radionuclides in Chemical Research; Nuclear Methods in Material Research; Radiation Chemistry; Radiation Biology and Radiation Protection; Radiochemistry and Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry for Medicine; Chemistry of the Actinide Elements; Production And Chemistry Of Transactinide Elements; Nuclear Waste Management and the Nuclear Fuel Cycle; High-intensity Lasers in Nuclear Science; Nuclear Forensics; Nuclear Processes in Nature; Subatomic Particles, Nuclear Structure and Stability. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.
Sándor Nagy was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1949. He received his MSc in chemistry from Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest, in 1972. He got his Dr. Univ. degree from ELTE in 1975, where he had also studied applied mathematics for five years. He received his CSc (PhD) in nuclear chemistry from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1996.
He has been working for ELTE ever since graduating there. Presently he is Associate Professor in the Laboratory of Nuclear Chemistry, Institute of Chemistry, ELTE. In the meantime he was Visiting Scientist at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, USA (1979-1980) and Postdoctoral Fellow/Adjunct Associate Professor at Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA (1987-1989). His research field has been chemical applications of Mössbauer spectroscopy. He teaches nuclear chemistry to chemistry majors. He co-edited with Prof. Vértes two books listed in the Bibliography. He also authored/co-authored some of the chapters of those books, and co-authored also the chapter on Mössbauer spectroscopy in Prof. Alfassi’s book. He is an IUPAC Fellow. He also used to work as National Representative for Hungary for IUPAC
