What is nuclear chemistry's position in the freshman chemistry curriculum?
A survey of freshman chemistry textbooks from the 1920's to the 1990's was performed. The amount and point of presentation of the nuclear chemistry material in these texts is compared. A further comparison is made with the nuclear material presented in nonscience majors textbooks. Finally, arguments are given regarding how nuclear chemists can affect the presentation of nuclear chemistry in future freshman chemistry textbooks.
