Nuclear Chemistry

Nuclear Chemistry

- The study of reactions that take place in the nuclei of atoms

Chemical Reactions

- In normal chemical reactions, only the electrons are involved

- A nucleus that spontaneously decomposes

- Elements with the same atomic number, but different mass number

Isotopes

- Elements with = numbers of protons, but numbers of neutrons

- All elements have at least one radioactive isotope

Radiation

- The emission of particles & rays from spontaneously decomposing nuclei

Modes of Decay

- Alpha emission
- Beta emission
- Gamma emission
- Positron emission
- K-electron capture

Alpha Particle (a)

- Helium nucleus
- 2 protons & 2 neutrons
- mass = 4 amu
- charge = +2
- Penetration power: small

Beta Particle (b)

- High speed electron
- 1 electron
- mass = 1/1836 amu
- charge = -1
- Penetration power: medium

Gamma Ray (g)

- High energy photon
- Electromagnetic wave
- mass = 0
- charge = 0
- Penetration power: great

Positron (p)

- Positive electron
- 1 positive electron
- mass = 1/1836 amu
- charge = +1
- Penetration power: medium

K-capture

- The capture of an inner level e- by the nucleus
- 1 electron
- mass = 1/1836 amu
- charge = -1

Nuclear Symbol

- Alpha:24Heor24a
- Beta: -10eor –10b
- Gamma: 0 0

Fission

- The splitting of a nucleus into smaller nuclei involving the release of energy

- Name five types of radiation

Drill:

- Name 3 common types of radiation

Fusion

- The combining of smaller nuclei into a larger one involving the release of energy

Transmutation Rxns

- Nuclear reactions in which one element is changed into another

Transmutation Rxns

- Reactions in which the nucleus of an atom is changed

Transmutation Rxns

- Both fission & fusion are examples of transmutation rxns

Transmutation Rxns

- Can occur through emission of or bombardment by radioactive particles

Transmutation Rxns

- b emission of Pm-142
- a bombardment of Th-231

- b absorption by V-45 followed by neutron emission then a emission

Decay Rate

- The rate at which radioactive nuclei break down

Half-Life

- The time it takes for 50 % of the radioactive nuclei to decompose

Decay Rate

- Rate = kDX/Dt
- ln(Xi/Xf) = kt1/2
- k = 0.693/t1/2
- t1/2 = half-life

Predict the products in each step when

Boron-12 goes through a bombardment followed by b emission.

Mass-Energy Relations

- DE = Dmc2

Nuclear Fact

- The mass of any nuclei is different than the sum of the masses of its protons & neutrons

Nuclear Fact

- The energy corresponding to the mass difference can be solved using:
- DE = Dmc2

Binding Energy

- The energy that holds a nucleus together corresponds to Dm of nucleus
