A model of an interphase transfer of stable products of the radiolysis of water in boiling coolant is developed taking account of the intensity of their delivery to the interphase boundary in the liquid phase and removal into the vapor phase with vapor generation on the interphase surface. A computational study is made of the radiolysis of the coolant and interphase transfer of the products of the radiolysis of water in the core and on the pulling section of BWR of the Oskarshamn-2 nuclear power plant in Sweden. A comparison of the computational data with the results of the technical measurements of the coolant composition of the BWR at the Oskarshamn-2 nuclear power plant showed that the accumulation of stable products of the radiolysis of water in the vapor-gas phase of the coolant is determined by the kinetics of radiolysis in the liquid phase, the concentration of the oxygen-containing components in the liquid phase is due to the present of hydrogen peroxide in it.
