  1. 1.

    In the radiolysis products of aerated and deaerated solutions of the 2-aminoethanethiosulfuric acid the authors have identified cystamine monoxide, cystamine, taurine, mercamine, the sulfate ion, the sulfite ion, and the dithionate ion. The yields of these products under different conditions have been determined.

  2. 2.

    The sulfate ion is formed both from the divalent and the hexavalent sulfur atom of the 2-aminoethanethiosulfuric acid molecule. A possible radiolysis mechanism is discussed.
