Radiation chemistry

Radiation chemistry

From basics to applications in material and life sciences

- Collection L'actualité chimique

308 pages, parution le 09/06/2008


This book gives a progress report on the many and original contributions of radiation chemistry to the fundamental knowledge of the vast domain of chemical reactions and its applications. Radiation chemistry techniques indeed make it possible to elucidate detailed physicochemical mechanisms in inorganic and organic chemistry (including in space) and in biochemistry. Moreover, this comprehension is applied in materials science to precisely control syntheses by radiation, such as radiopolymerisation, radiografting, specific treatment of surfaces (textiles, paintings, inks, etc.), synthesis of complex nanomaterials, degradation of environmental pollutants and radioresistance of materials for nuclear reactors. In life sciences, the study of the effects of radiation on biomacromolecules (DNA, proteins, lipids) not only permits the comprehension of normal or pathological biological mechanisms, but also the improvement of our health. In particular, many advances in cancer radiotherapy, in the radioprotection of nuclear workers and the general population, as well as in the treatment of diseases and the radiosterilization of drugs, could be obtained thanks to this research.

Abundantly illustrated and written in English by top international specialists who have taken care to render the subjects accessible, this work will greatly interest those curious about a scientific field that is new to them and students attracted by the original and multidisciplinary aspects of the field. At a time when radiation chemistry research is experiencing spectacular development in numerous countries, this book will attract many newcomers to the field.

L'auteur Mehran Mostafavi

Mostafavi est professeur de Chimie Physique à l'université Paris-Sud et dirige le Laboratoire de Chimie Physique, unité mixte du CNRS. Il étudie les processus de solvatation de l'électron et de formation des nanoclusters de métal et de semi-conducteurs en solution. Ses travaux sont menés à l'aide de l'installation ELYSE du Laboratoire, comprenant une chaîne laser femtoseconde et un accélérateur d'électrons picoseconde.
