Nuclear transmutation

Definition

noun

The transformation or conversion of one element or isotope into another through the process of nuclear reaction.


Supplement

Nuclear transmutation occurs naturally when radioactive elements spontaneously decay over time into other more stable elements. Artificially, it can be done with the use of particle accelerators and other fission power reactors. With the recent study, nuclear transmutation is seen as a possible mechanism to reduce the volume and hazard of radioactive waste.
