Royal Society of Chemistry's interactive periodic table
The Royal Society of Chemistry's interactive periodic table features history, alchemy, podcasts, videos, and data trends across the periodic table.
|Bowling with isotopes|
|What are isotopes? In this short video Professor Jane Evans compares bowling balls to isotopes and explains how their study can tell us the age of rocks as well as information about our own ancestry.|
|The radioactive orchestra|
|The Radioactive Orchestra is an artistic, musical and pedagogical project about creating music using radioactive isotopes. In collaboration with nuclear physicists Bo Cederwall and Torbjörn Bäck, music producer Axel Boman and media artist Kristofer Hagbard have created musical algorithms based on the scientists’ models of how radiation is emitted from various isotopes.|
|Videos explaining properties of the elements|
|This periodic table has a short video about each chemical element. All the videos were created by video journalist Brady Haran, featuring real working chemists from the University of Nottingham.|
|The advanced soil geochemical atlas of England and Wales|
|This atlas describes soil geochemistry for 53 stable elements. It is the outcome of research conducted between the British geological survey (BGS) and Rothamstead Research and published with funding from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). It contains a summary, summary statistics and descriptions of the spatial distribution of each element within England and Wales. An ebook is also available.|
|Explore the interactive, virtual community of RadTown USA.|
|Radiation is a fact of life|
|Radiation is a fact of life: A slide show on radiation sources from the International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA).|
|A DGT Technique for Plutonium Bioavailability Measurements|
The technique of diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) is proposed for speciation studies of plutonium. This video protocol describes diffusion experiments probing the behavior of Pu(IV) and Pu(V) in presence of organic matter. DGTs deployed in a karstic spring allow assessment of the bioavailability of Pu.
