ELECTRON-SPIN MAGNETIC RESONANCE OF FREE-RADICAL INTERMEDIATES IN GAMMA-IRRADIATED HYDROCARBONS,
GENERAL DYNAMICS/FORT WORTH TEX
Results of a study of the character and origin of the electron-spin magnetic-resonance spectra of gamma-irradiated hydrocarbon compounds are presented. The compounds examined include selected alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, branched alkanes, and cycloparaffins. All irradiations and resonance measurements were performed at 77 K. Spectral analysis was directed toward identification of the chemical species responsi ble for the observed hyperfine patterns. Struc tural interpretation wfined to free-radi cal species resulting from carbon-hydrogen and carbon-carbon bond scission in the parent mole cule. These results are incorporated into an evaluation of the current status of free-radical spectra from irradiated hydrocarbons. Author
