Radiation Oncology/Radiochemistry

  • Radiochemistry is the chemistry of radioactive materials, where radioactive isotopes of elements are used to study the properties and chemical reactions of non-radioactive isotopes (often within radiochemistry the absence of radioactivity leads to a substance being described as being inactive as the isotopes are stable
  • Radiochemistry includes the study of both natural and man-made radioisotopes
