Abstract

Investigation of the chemistry of the elements by conventional methods is generally limited to concentrations on the order of 10-5 M or higher. The discovery of radio-activity opened new fields in chemistry among which is the obtaining of information concerning chemical behavior of elements at very low concentrations. For many years after the initial discovery of radioactivity in 1896 by Becquerel, the study of low-concentration chemistry was limited to about ten naturally occurring radioactive elements. A renewed interest in this field was generated after 1934 when it was discovered by Curie and Joliot that radioactive elements could be artificially produced.
