Chemistry - Non-renewable energy sources: nuclear energy - fission and
fusion

Non-renewable energy sources: nuclear energy - fission and fusion

Nuclear fusion is the joining of small nuclei to produce larger nuclei and
is a very clean means of producing energy. At very high temperatures,
around 107 degrees C, hydrogen nuclei fuse together to produce helium
nuclei. An example of this is in the reaction between deuterium
(hydrogen-2) and tritium (hydrogen-3), represented by the equation:

Nuclear fusion power stations are highly desirable but, because of the
high temperatures and the large amounts of hydrogen isotopes required, it
is not yet possible to use fusion to produce electricity on an industrial
scale.
