From the curie to the becquerel

The evolution of concepts, quantities and units in radioactivity is analysed. The international coherence of activity measurements is presented and a brief history of radium standards is given.

Discovery of the Electron: Radioactivity

This chapter continues the review of the discovery of the electron by looking at the discovery of radiation and radioactivity from natural sources and the recognition that one of the components of

The Dawn of Radiochemistry

Chemical research on radioactivity started in 1898. That year, three short key Notes by the Curies reawakened the topic of uranic rays discovered two years earlier by Becquerel. The discoveries of

The Discovery of Radioactivity

Abstract The radioactivity of uranium was discovered in 1896 by Henri Becquerel who, starting from a wrong idea, progressively realized what he was observing, regularly informing the French Academy

Radioactivity: The First Puzzles

Henri Becquerel, while searching for X-rays, discovers a radiation emitted by uranium. The scientific community shows no interest in such a weak and incomprehensible phenomenon with no practical

The way to superheavy elements

This review is devoted to the studies of heavy and superheavy elements and the methods of their synthesis and identification. Special attention is paid to the latest discoveries in the area of

One Hundred Years Ago: The Birth of Uranium-Series Science

One hundred years ago: the date is 1903, and it is an auspicious year in the history of radiochemistry. 1903 witnessed the first published version of a radioactive decay chain; the submission of
