Radon monitoring in a historical building in Košice city, Slovakia – a case study
It is known that the highest contribution to the yearly radiation dose for the population derives from natural radioactivity. About 50% of that is estimated to be caused by exposure to radon (Rn) and

Organising the metals and nonmetals
TLDR
The periodic table can be simply demarcated into four classes of metal and fourclasses of nonmetal, revealing some interesting patterns and facilitates teaching and learning the periodic table.

TLDR
The calculated melting temperature are in excellent agreement with the often debated (but widely cited) and only available value of 202 K, dating back to measurements by Gray and Ramsay in 1909.
Review of high-sensitivity Radon studies
A challenge in many present cutting-edge particle physics experiments is the stringent requirements in terms of radioactive background. In peculiar, the prevention of Radon, a radioactive noble gas,

Histogram-reweighting Monte Carlo simulations in the grand canonical ensemble are used to determine saturated liquid and vapor densities, vapor pressures, heats of vaporization, and compressibility
A theoretical benchmark study of the spectroscopic constants of the very heavy rare gas dimers.
TLDR
In an attempt to reduce the computational cost while retaining very high accuracy, a computational protocol using the eXact 2-Component molecular-mean field Hamiltonian has been established based on extensive calculations of the xenon dimer and it is found that reliable results require CCSD(T) calculations at the extrapolated basis set limit.
