The crosslinking G-factor for polystyrene using 80-90 MeV electrons was determined for comparison with the crosslinking G-factor determined using pile radiation with neutron energies up to 2 MeV, and Co60 gamma rays. The high energy electron source used was the N.P.G.S. linear accelerator. A G-factor of . 035 plus or minus .006 was determined. This value is slightly lower than the value of .05 plus or minus .01 reported for pile and gamma radiation 1.
