11th October 2021 – A Story of Radioactivity: A Glowing Tale

Dr Louise Natrajan, The Department of Chemistry, School of Natural Sciences, University of Manchester will present this talk. She will discuss the myths surrounding radioactivity, how it was initially thought to have health benefits through to how it is now considered harmful.  She will show how electricity production from nuclear fission can be safely managed, providing that we are able to identify and trace radioactive waste products and describe how the fluorescence of uranium can be used to help clean up nuclear wastes in the environment.
