Uranium Thorium Dating

Uranium-Thorium dating is based on the detection by mass spectrometry of both the parent (234 U) and daughter (230 Th) products of decay through the emission of an alpha particle The decay of Uranium 234 to Thorium 230 is part of the much longer decay series begining in 238 U and ending in 206 Pb

Thorium Cleaner Nuclear Power?

Aug 09 2007Thorium is seen by some as the nuclear fuel of the future For a start there is much more thorium than uranium in the Earth's crust and all the thorium mined can be used in a reactor (compared to below 1% of natural uranium) Thorium fuel cycles also produce much less plutonium and other radioactive transuranic elements than uranium fuel cycles
