    Ok, so what exactly are you willing to know about Nuclear Chemistry?

    Anyway, I would like to say the following... The chemistry in general deals with the electrons, and we generally don't get involved into any details about the nucleus while we are discussing about any chemical reaction..

    ya.... I know about electrons... cause we just finished learning about atoms and atomic structure!

    And it is not that we are not interested about the nucleus of the atom, while we are dealing with a simple chemical reaction, but it is that, nothing significant happens inside it, during a chemical reaction...

    so.. the unit is all about chemical reactions, of such chemicals?

    The nucleus gets involved only when it is participating in a nuclear reaction...

    so.. its not all chem reactions of different particles?

    The atom consists of electrons, protons, and neutrons ...

    All these days, whatever you were studying, involved the studies of the games played by electrons

    In all the chemical reactions, that you studied, the neutron and the proton, never played any role

    I mean in any of the reactions that you studied till now, you never found a neutron getting removed or added

    yes we did... thats what forms an ion

    The only things that were removed or added were the electrons.

    Now since that part of the chemistry had no involvement with the nucleus of the atom, we don't call it nucleus chemistry..

    But whatever you are going to study now, will have direct involvement of the nucleus, i.e. either the proton or the neutron or both

    And in nuclear chemistry the involvement of the electrons don't count...
