Abstract

Radio-chemistry was introduced as a separate branch of chemistry by Pierre and Marie Curie in 1898. The first radio-chemical process consisted of the separation and identification of the new element Polonium from the uranium ores pitchblende and chalcalite. It is significant that this process involved an amount of material so small that it could be detected only by its intense radioactivity. In the last half-century radio-chemistry has developed into a field of ever increasing diversification.
