Beakers in the radiochemistry lab


Radiochemistry is an interdisciplinary applied science that explores both the radioactive and chemical characteristics of elements and compounds to address technical needs in many areas, including nuclear material science, waste treatment and disposal, environmental and biomedical applications.

Paulenova's Radiochemistry Research Group combines expertise from Oregon State University's School of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE); Department of Chemistry; and School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering (CBEE).
