  2. Analytical Techniques for Radiochemical Purity Determination.
  3. Cell lines and cell culture
  4. Synthesis and Purification of a Radiopharmaceutical
  5. Chemical Identification of a Radiopharmaceutical
  6. In Vitro Evaluation of a Radiopharmaceutical 
  7. Cellular Studies of a Target-Specific Radiopharmaceutical
  8. Small Animal Imaging Studies of a Target-Specific Radiopharmaceutical

This training aims to introduce the participants to Radioanalytical Chemistry, a field belonging simultaneously to analytical chemistry and applied radiochemistry that is concerned primarily with the use of radionuclides and ionising radiation for analytical purposes. Participation in this course is a logical choice for (but not limited to) graduates of the CINCH Hands-on Training in Nuclear Chemistry who want to deepen their knowledge of applications of radiochemistry.

This dedicated training course aims at delivering the basics of nuclear and radiochemistry (NRC) to trainees with chemical background at Master level (chemistry masters or engineers, and/or freshPhD students), who need to extend their skills and knowledge to the field of nuclear and radiochemistry.

The course provides an overview of the fundamental principles of separation methods used in radiochemistry (extraction and chromatography) to NRC master and PhD level students and/or to analytical chemists without NRC background who have acquired the fundamental nuclear chemistry knowledge e.g. by having passed the HoT in Nuclear Chemistry (or equivalent in radioanalytical laboratories).

The theoretical part of the course explains the specifics of the separation methods in radiochemistry and reviews the principles of key separation methods – solvent extraction including extraction of chelates and ion associates, extraction and ion exchange chromatography. Precipitation and co-precipitation as well as electrochemical methods are also discussed. The lectures/readings are complemented with remote operated RoboLab exercises aimed at the demonstration of the basic principles of some of the methods.

The practical part aims to familiarise students with selected separation methods and procedures allowing comparison of experimental results and related theory.

The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the applications of nuclear and radiochemistry (NRC) in analytical chemistry to NRC master and Ph.D. level students and/or analytical chemists without NRC background working in radioanalytical laboratories.

In this course basic steps in analytical radiochemistry are presented.

This training course aims to deliver the basics of alpha, beta and gamma spectroscopy techniques for the determination of radionuclides in environmental samples.

The course encompass determination of uranium in water. After introduction to radioactivity and radiochemistry, detailed information on how to determine uranium in water samples is provided. 

Complex of lectures by Eric Ansoborlo (CEA) on chemistry of radionuclides and their speciation in the environment.

The Interactive Screen Experiment "Dose Calibration in Gamma Field" enables users to have a first-hand experience concerning the calibration of different dosimeters in gamma fields. By means of an interactive interface, the user can choose an irradiation set up and a dosimeter to work with. Under these experimental conditions, specific activities will be proposed to understand the sensitivity of a dosimeter, to experience the energy dependence of the dose response as well as the effect of distance and shielding. Author of the proposed ISE is the Radiochemistry and Radiation Chemistry Laboratory at the Department of Energy of Politecnico di Milano.     

The course was created by prof. Bruce Hanson and his colleagues from University of Leeds

E-Lecture by Dr. Grégory LEFEVRE (CNRS & ENSCP)

The Programmable Autodeposition Lab PAuLa deals with the autodeposition of Technetium on different metal strips. For this purpose, the user can operate a robot arm with which he can dip metal pieces of different nobility in the technetium solution.

The objective of IonLab is to introduce the basic concepts of chromatography, in particular extraction chromatography, by the separation of strontium-90 and its daughter yttrium-90 via an ion exchange resin.

In this remote experiment, users can examine different samples gamma-spectrometrically with a High-Purity Germanium (HPGe) detector. The samples are an environmental sample, soil samples from the vicinity of the failed reactors in Chernobyl and Fukushima, a uranium pellet and a sample of Cs-134.

This e-course contains the lectures of the Winter School at KTH, Stockholm "Nuclear Fuel Characterization" carried out in January 2014. Participants have to complete three main presentations and final badge test to pass this e-course.

Course consists of lectures by Dr. Damian Axente, University of Cluj, Romania, which are divided into four slideslive video-presentations. A participant must see all four slideslives to pass the course and pass a final test in order to gain the Isotope Separation badge.

This e-course contains the lectures of the Summer School at Chalmers "Working with Plutonium" carried out in May 2015. Participants have to complete three main presentations and final badge test to pass this e-course. 

This page provides background information for the teacher.

Following on from the introductory e-learning, this section is to be used by teachers to run the "Ionlab" experiment in class.

In this course, you will be introduced to radioisotopes and learn how these can be used to treat cancer. This online course will help prepare you for your next chemistry lesson,  where you will produce a medical radioisotope using column chromatography.

This short course will cover:

  • Radioisotopes
  • Chromatography techniques
  • Ionlab experimental procedure

Please review the material before your chemistry lesson.

The online lecture deals with the fundamentals of ionizing radiation starting from the structure of an atom via different types of radiation and their detection through dosimetry and natural radioactivity. Each topic is divided into several videos each about 10-15 min, so that it is free to the users based on their foreknowledge and interests where they steps into the course.

This course offers the lectures dealing with basics of nuclear and radiochemistry to everybody who wants to extend his knowledge to the field of nuclear and radiochemistry. It is recommended to have the chemical background at Master level (chemistry masters or engineers, and/or fresh PhD students).

This course introduces users to radiation protection before practical exercise in radiochemical laboratories.

Základní kurz radiační ochrany pro účastníky různých laboratorních praktik na katedře jaderné chemie, FJFI, která probíhají ve sledovaném nebo kontrolovaném pásmu. Kurz je primárně určen pro externí účastníky.

This course outlines Moodle's features by providing examples of activities and resources.
This Wiki is open access, but if you want
to contribute you must register as a user (it's free and we will not distribute your e-mail address to others). We strongly urge you to contribute, in particular if you are using material from NukWik in your own teaching - the more material you contribute, the more useful and better NukWik will be, and then we can all give better lectures and enhance the quality of our teaching!

NukWik was created as part of the CINCH EU-project for evaluating and planing radiochemistry teaching in Europe. Please refer to the CINCH web-pages at:


The "Sand Box " course is the good place to make all the test and experiments before editing a course.
This is a free course we created to help explain Moodle in 'context'; as a piece of technology, as a philosophy, and as a teachers tool.
  • This is a prerequisite self-paced course that can be taken at any time before starting the full MoodleBites course and explores: Moodle history and development, Moodle history and development, Moodle fundamentals, and comparing Moodle with other Course Management Systems
MoodleBites is unique in three respects:
  1. It has a focus on how to use Moodle features in teaching.
  2. Throughout the course indicators are provided to the Moodle Course Creator Certificate (MCCC) Skills Sets - so the course is ideal for MTC candidates.
  3. The course development team is international and MoodleBites has been written to be accessible for speakers of English as a second or other language.
