The Nuclear Chemistry division was founded in 1956 and focuses on the advancement of nuclear-, radio-, and radiation chemistry as well as the support of students, engineers and scientists working in these fields. A special priority is the spread of information about new results and applications.
The following platforms and activities foster the sharing of ideas and experiences and stimulate professional exchange:
An important aspect is the promotion and securing of sufficient research-, teaching- and training capacities in nuclear-, radio- and radiation chemistry.

The Nuclear Chemistry division of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh, German Chemical Society) represents scientists and engineers who handle radioactive materials and ionizing radiation in their work and use these in research, industry, medicine and teaching. Their work can be summarized in the following key areas:
- Chemistry of the heaviest elements
- Actinide chemistry
- Nuclear chemistry in the life sciences (radiopharmacy)
- Isotope geochemistry
- Radiation protection and radioecology
- Nuclear forensics
- Actinide recycling
- Nuclear waste repository research
- Reactor chemistry
- Tritium chemistry
The executive board consists of a chair, a deputy and up to five further board members. Universities, industry and research centers ought to be represented in the board. An advisory committee, which also includes student members, supports the executive board.
The division’s Fritz Straßmann Prize is awarded to personalities who have performed excellent work in the field of nuclear chemistry.
The division’s Doctoral Thesis Award honors outstanding doctoral theses performed in the field of nuclear chemistry and is typically awarded every two years.
