About this book

This book provides detailed information on the electrochemistry of technetium compounds. After a brief physico-chemical characterization of this element, it presents the comparative chemistry of technetium, manganese and rhenium. Particular attention is paid to the stability, disproportionation, comproportionation, hydrolysis and polymerization reactions of technetium ions and their influence on the observed redox systems. The electrochemical properties of both inorganic as well as organic technetium species in aqueous and non-aqueous solutions are also discussed. The respective chapters cover the whole spectrum of topics related to the application of technetium in nuclear medicine, electrochemistry of technetium in spent nuclear fuel (including corrosion properties of technetium alloys), and detecting trace amounts of technetium with the aid of electrochemical methods. Providing readers with information not easily obtained in any other single source, the book will appeal to researchers working in nuclear chemistry, nuclear medicine or the nuclear industry.

About the authors

Dr. Andrzej Czerwiński, DSc., is a Professor at the University of Warsaw, where he is the Head of the Laboratory of Electrochemical Power Sources. In the period 1999-2019, he served as a Professor in the Industrial Chemistry Research Institute (Poland). His research interests span the areas of fundamental electrochemistry, electrochemical power sources, nuclear chemistry, radiotracer methods in electrode processes studies, catalysts in fuel cells, electrochemistry of hydrogen in palladium and its alloys,and chemistry education. Dr. Czerwiński spent several years as a Postdoc and as a Visiting Professor in the USA (University of Cincinnati), Italy (University of Camerino), Germany (Freie Universität Berlin) and Latvia (Institute of Solid State Physic in Riga). He is an author and co-author of more than 300 scientific papers, 30 patents and 16 textbooks for students. Prof. Czerwiński teaches physical chemistry, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and chemistry education.


 Dr. Maciej Chotkowski is an Assistant Professor at the University of Warsaw (Poland) where he also obtained his Ph.D. Dr. Chotkowski is a specialist in the application of electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods for the investigation of redox behavior of technetium, manganese and rhenium compounds. He is an author of more than 20 research papers and oral presentations at international conferences. Most of them deal with the fundamental properties of technetium and manganese inorganic ionic species in aqueous media. Dr. Chotkowski teaches nuclear chemistry and chemistry education.
