Nuclear Chemistry, historically, has been involved in the "synthesis" of new elements and isotopes; Chemistry is a synthetic science at heart afterall. Nuclear physics is more interested in the nuclear properties and structure of the newly discovered isotopes/elements. As such Nuclear Chemistry and Nuclear Physics have huge areas where they overlap.
My project, which I was just given just this past Thursday so I'm still learning, is to further investigate the gas-phase Chemistry of the heavy elements. The simple oxides and halides of Rutherfordium through Hassium have been done for the most part. What I suspect will be my focus, is to begin doing the coordination chemistry of the heavy elements with organic ligands and other structures. I've actually been given a lot of leeway on where I want to go with this. It seems a bit overwelming at the moment, but then again I've only just joined this project.
