What is it about?

The mandate of Green Chemistry is to use safer chemicals benign to the environment. The classical precipitation technique does not use any organic chemicals, therefore safe from green chemistry point of view. The precipitation technique was applied for separation of lead and bismuth individually from lead bismuth eutectic. This simulation will ultimately help to separate large numbers of radionuclides which might be produced inside lead bismuth target when bombarded with high energy proton beams.

Why is it important?

This is important because simple precipitation technique has been used as a green chemistry mandate. Moreover, this is important in view of the separation of large number of radioisotopes, which have beneficial role for humankind, that would be produced in lead bismuth eutectic if bombarded by high energy protons.


An example;e where green chemistry is used in forerunner interdisciplinary science.
