Applications of Nuclear and Radiochemistry is a collection of articles focusing on contemporary applied research on radioactive isotopes. The monograph is based on the Second Chemical Congress of the North American Continent, held at Las Vegas, Nevada in August 1980. The book contains articles on developments in nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry, emphasizing the topic of radiopharmaceutical chemistry. The text is composed of two parts, wherein the first part is comprised of papers dealing with advances in the production of radionuclides for nuclear medicine, in the synthesis of labeled pharmaceuticals, and in the design and use of specific diagnostic agents. These sections cover research areas on machines used for research, such as compact accelerators, positron emission, and single photon tomographs. Emphasis is given to the radiochemistry and design of radiopharmaceuticals for receptor studies and for determining physiological function and metabolism of the brain, heart, and tumors. The second part examines contemporary advances including the impact of radiochemistry in China pertaining to the fallout from Chinese nuclear tests. This part also contains a section covering a list of uncommon topics. The text is of interest to nuclear scientists, academicians in the field of radiology and radiochemistry, researchers in nuclear medicine, nuclear engineers, and environmental researchers.
