|Comparison of radioactive properties of uranium isotopes|
The main isotopes of uranium contained in this table have extremely long lifetimes with the exception of uranium 232. All are alpha emitters of 4 to 5 MeV of energy. The left columns of the table show however the presence of a low energy gamma radiation and rare decays beta. Specific activities (activities reduced to 1 gram) are inversely proportional to half-lives.
