Abstract

As with most organic compounds, one of the principal end-products resulting from the effect of high-energy ionizing radiation on pure ethanol is hydrogen gas. Much interest has been shown recently in the radiolysis of alcohols, and this paper presents data on hydrogen atom yields, which help to distinguish the various possible mechanisms.
