Nuclear Chemical Engineering, Second Edition

by: Manson Benedict, Ph.D., Thomas H. Pigford, Ph.D., Prof. Dr. Hans Wolfgang Levi


Abstract: Since 1957 nuclear power systems have become important contributors to the energy supply of most industrialized nations. This text describes the materials of special importance in nuclear reactors and the processes that have been developed to concentrate, purify, separate, and store safely these materials. Because of the growth in nuclear technology since the first edition appeared and the great amount of published new information, the second edition is an entirely new book, following the first edition only in its general outline.
