Radiolysis of Carbon Tetrachloride in the Presence of Oxygen

Abstract

CARBON TETRACHLORIDE containing oxygen from the air is very often used as a solvent for the isolation of radioisotopes, as a radiation–polymerization inhibitor, and as a basic material in chemical dosimetry and in sulphur-35 production as well. Its radiolysis is very significant in all these cases.
