Abstract:

The vinyl monomer investigated polymerized via a free radical mechanism. A comparison of the effects of neutrons and x-rays is performed on the basis of radiation induced cross-linking on monomer molecules as exhibited by the production of a gel as an index. Neutron fluxes were measured using threshold foils and absorbed doses calculated using first collision approximations. Author
