Nuclear Chemistry

Nuclear chemistry or physics, the part of physics or chemistry in science deals with radioactivity, 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 reaction are also the topics of nuclear chemistry.

Nuclear fission, radioactive decay reaction where heavy nucleus (uranium or plutonium) of atom subdivided or split into two or more smaller, lighter nuclei
