Handbook was developed to assist nuclear facility operating contractorsin providing operators, maintenance personnel, and the technical staff with the necessaryfundamentals training to ensure a basic understanding of chemistry. The handbook includesinformation on the atomic structure of matter; chemical bonding; chemical equations; chemicalinteractions involved with corrosion processes; water chemistry control, including the principlesof water treatment; the hazards of chemicals and gases, and basic gaseous diffusion processes.This information will provide personnel with a foundation for understanding the chemicalproperties of materials and the way these properties can impose limitations on the operation of equipment and systems.
Key Words:

Department of Energy Fundamentals Handbook 
was prepared asan information resource for personnel who are responsible for the operation of the Department’snuclear facilities. An understanding of chemistry will enable contractor personnel to understandthe intent of the chemical concerns within their facility. A basic understanding of chemistry isnecessary for DOE nuclear facility operators, maintenance personnel, and the technical staff tosafely operate and maintain the facility and facility support systems. The information in thehandbook is presented to provide a foundation for applying engineering concepts to the job. Thisknowledge will help personnel understand the impact that their actions may have on the safe andreliable operation of facility components and systems.The
handbook consists of five modules that are contained in two volumes. Thefollowing is a brief description of the information presented in each module of the handbook.Volume 1 of 2Module 1 - Fundamentals of ChemistryIntroduces concepts on the atomic structure of matter. Discusses the periodic tableand the significance of the information in a periodic table. Explains chemicalbonding, the laws of chemistry, and chemical equations.Appendix A - Basic Separation TheoryIntroduces basic separation theory for the gaseous diffusion process.Discusses converter construction and basic operating principals.Module 2 - CorrosionSupplies basic information on the chemical interaction taking place during thecorrosion process between the environment and the corroding metal.
