Abstract:

Alkyl iodides and their mixtures were irradiated with CO60 gamma rays. Hydrogen iodide and iodine formation was measured as a function of dose for deaerated liquid and solid alkyl iodides and their mixtures. G-values for hydroperoxide formation in aerated alkyl iodides were measured and evidence was found for dialkyl peroxide formation in aerated alkyl iodides. Absorption spectra of the charge transfer complexes IRI formed in the pulse radiolysis of alkyl iodides, were measured and molar extinction coefficients and rate constants for the decay of IRI were obtained. The effect of oxygen and iodine on the formation and constant of decay of IRI was studied. Pulse radiolysis studies of alkyl iodides indicated that the decomposition of solute is larger than that expected on the basis of energy directly absorbed by the solute.
