G-values for radiolysis products were determined for propyne and butyne-1 in the vapor phase and for butyne-1, butyne-2, pentyne-1, pentyne-2, hexyne-3, acetonitrile and propionitrile in the liquid phase. The rupture of a C-H bond probably from a carbon beta to the triple bond results in H2, coupling products, and H atom addition. H atom addition leads to mono and poly olefins. The rupture of a C-C bond results in fragmentation in the vapor phase but recombination to form 1.2-diolefins in liquid phase. Both alpha and beta C-C bond rupture occur. Alkyl benzene--alkyne trimers--form, probably by excitation. Analogous C3N3 ring compounds may form but were not detected. Gas chromatography techniques for alkyne and nitrile analyses are described.
