Annotation -
Technical Nuclear Chemistry and Nuclear Wastes give students knowledge about principles, technology and ways of usage of nuclear energy. After these lectures will student understand the connections and implications of the world nuclear industry, possibilities of future development and relations between the nuclear energy and present environment problems. Chemical regimes and material solutions are discussed in some details. Excursion to one Czech nuclear power plant is part of this course.
