Nuclear Chemistry

What is nuclear chemistry?

Nuclear chemistry or physics is the part of physics or chemistry in science that deals with radioactivity, and artificial and natural nuclear transformation reactions that define the nuclear properties by radioactive decay law.

The radioactive isotopes of periodic table elements with their nuclear properties and reactions are also topics of nuclear chemistry.
