Abstract : In neutral aqueous solutions, irradiated with Co60 gamma rays, two reducing species, i.e. the self-trapped electron (negative polaron) thereafter denoted by (H2O)-, and primarily formed H atoms, have been shown to be present. In irra diated 1.6 times 10 to the minus 2M aqueous solutions of N2O a yield of G(N2) -3.2 (molecules/100 eV) was found. This yield, coming from the reaction of negative polarons with N2O, is unaltered in the presence of solutes which do not react with (H2O)-. (Author)
