Fundamentals of Radiation Chemistry
- A. Mozumder, University of Notre Dame, Indiana, U.S.A.
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.
Upper-division undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and industrial practitioners in the fields of radiation chemistry (within physical chemistry) and radiation biology; courses in chemical physics and condensed matter sciences; national laboratories and hospitals.
