Radon

Radon

Radon (or Rn-222) is a naturally occurring radioactive noble gas with a half-life of 3.8 days resulting from the decay of radium (Ra-226) (uranium-radium series). In the further decay chain arise as follow-on nuclides the short-lived alpha emitters Polonium (Po-218), Polonium (Po-214) and the beta emitters lead (Pb-214) and bismuth (Bi-214), which bind to dust particles and the largest part of the inhalation-related radiation exposure. Particularly important for indoor radon is the penetration of radon from the natural soil. This is particularly the case with houses with poor isolation from the ground. Anomalies caused by building materials usually have one subordinate meaning and are only relevant in individual cases.
