The distribution of products from the radiolysis of butyne-2, propyne, pentyne-2, hexyne-3 and butyne-1 are given. Dimers, trimers and tetramers, of empirical formulae CnH2n, CnH2n-2 and CnH2n-4, are formed in the following relative concentration Dimers Trimers Tetramers. A general mechanism on the basis of free radical reactions is invoked to account for this distribution. In addition, aromatic products are also formed. Author
