Radiation processing: transactions of the First International Meeting on Radiation Processing, a conference. [Joseph Silverman; A R Van Dyken; American Chemical Society. Division of Polymer Chemistry.; American Nuclear Society. Isotopes and Radiation Division.; Society of Plastics Engineers. Electronics Division.;]. Food irradiation is the process of exposing food and food packaging to ionizing ng radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds in the targeted radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated.

This book concentrates on radiation dosimetry which is fundamental to all radiation processes, especially in the sterilization of medical devices and in food irradiation. It is a development of reports from the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements. Unambiguous communication of concepts is crucial taking into account the relevant implications that may arise from misunderstandings with regard to equipment and materials involved in the standards dealing with any subject regarding radiation processing activities. Concepts dealing with dosimetry related to radiation processing and procedures for preparation, testing, and using dosimetry. Radiation processing of natural polymers involves a simple, ecofriendly, and fast process that has harmless feature and provides advanced materials with unique properties. The chapter intends to be an overview of the major findings in the last decade concerning the starches modified by ionizing radiation by: 2.
