Radiotracer Studies of Interfacespresents a selection of examples illustrating the application of radiotracer studies for different types of interfaces. The value of radiotracer studies in fields such as food chemistry, corrosion of metals, neurochemistry, biology and catalysis is revealed. Separate chapters are devoted to the environmental problems connected with nuclear reactors and with the nuclear industry in general. The book also presents efforts to minimize and avoid the risk of radioactive contamination in the environment by describing new approaches to the problem.

  • Demonstrates the use of radiotracers
  • Contains a detailed discussion of double-layer phenomena
  • Separate chapters are devoted to the most important branches of science where radiotracer study of interfacial phenomena plays an important role

Editorial Reviews

"In total there are more than one-thousand references. The editor has unified the style of each o the chapters so that each one flows effortlessly into the text. This book can be considered a "must have" for any current researcher studying the field interfaces using tracers and for those who are considering getting into this area." S. Landsberger, University of Texas at Austin, USA, JOURNAL OF RADIOANALYTICAL AND NUCLEAR CHEMISTRY, '04 "This book is commended to readers interested in the applications of radiotracers to the study of interfacial phenomena, particularly adsorption and surface catalysis, electrified interfaces and colloidal systems, interfacical diffusion, monolayers at fluid-fluid interfaces, biomembranes, and environmental interfaces." Arther Hubbard, JOURNAL OF COLLOID AND INTERFACE SCIENCE, Vol.287, 2005
