About The Book

This book "Radioactive Materials" is an excellent Text for the students of B.Sc.,M.Sc., and B.E.(Fire-Engg) and at the same time a valuable "Quick reference" book for the scientist/Engineers working in Nuclear and Radiation Chemistry Laboratories as well as for operational fire-officers/Engineers. This book also deals with Fundamentals the in a more distinct manner supporting with neat and labeled diagrams. This book also describes the above said chapters in simplified terms so as to cater to the needs of the community. The book will be of immense use to all those who are connected with the understanding of Nuclear & Radiation Chemistry, Principles of Radiation Dosimetry, Fundamental of Radiology, Genetic hazards of Radiation, Handling of Radioactive Materials, Radioactive waste management, Fire-safety & risk Management.
