Nuclear chemistry, sometimes also known as Radiochemistry, is the branch of Chemistry dealing with radioactivity, nuclear processes such as nuclear transmutation and nuclear properties. Nuclear chemistry has many applications in medicine, agriculture, industry and research. It ranges from the study of the formation of the elements in the universe to the design of radioactive drugs for diagnostic medicine. Nuclear chemistry greatly assists the understanding of medical treatments such as cancer radiotherapy and radiation oncology and has enabled these treatments to improve. Nuclear Chemistry also has many applications in non-radioactive areas of human activity such as; nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is commonly used in synthetic organic chemistry and physical chemistry and for structural analysis in macromolecular chemistry. Nuclear Chemistry applications greatly improve the day to day quality of human lives.
