  • The transplutonium elements (Seaborg et al., 1949a, b)—formed from plutonium by sequential neutron captures and beta-particle decays—are among the most hazardous by-products of nuclear power generation (E. D. Arnold, 1970). In his preliminary reports of the first biological studies with americium and curium, Hamilton (1947, 1948) pointed out the potential dangers of the actinide elements; “They share the radioactive and metabolic characteristics of radium—alpha-particle emission, long physical… CONTINUE READING
