The purpose of this book is to emphasize the importance of the existence
of the radioactive gas radon in the environment and to make this natural
phenomenon a top issue because radon is included in class A human
note is intended to provide a broad understanding of how different types of
radiation deposit energy, including the creation and behavior of secondary
radiations; of how radiation affects cells and why the different types of
radiation have very different biological effects. Also explains the effects of
radiation on biological systems including DNA damage, in vitro cell survival
models and in vivo mammalian systems.
This note covers the following topics: Liquid-Liquid Extraction
Equipment, Non Aqueous Processes, Complexation Chemistry and Precipitation /
Crystallization Processes, Modeling and Simulation of Nuclear Fuel Recycling
Systems, Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Its Chemistry, Mining, Milling, Conversion, and
Enrichment of Uranium Ores, Reactors, Fuels.
