In 2007 a Hungarian book entitled Sugárkémia (Radiation Chemistry) was published by the head of the Department.

The first chapters of the book describing the sources of ionizing radiation, absorption of radiation energy in matter, experimental techniques, and the radiation chemistry of simple gaseous, liquid, and solid systems may be regarded as introduction to radiation chemistry. The major part of the book deals with practical applications e.g. water as coolant of nuclear reactors or radiation thermal cracking of hydrocarbons. The chapter devoted to polymers in addition to explaining the theory introduces the main industrial radiation chemical technologies in the polymer field. The chapters dealing with food irradiation, sterilization, environmental protection also describe the applied radiation processing technologies.
