Gamma radiolytic decomposition of solid binary mixtures of potassium nitrate with halides

  • R. J. Batra
  • A. N. Garg


Gamma-ray induced decomposition of solid binary mixtures of KNO3 with halides viz. KCl, KBr and KI has been studied at room temperature. G(NO 2 ) values were found to vary with absorbed dose. Size and electronegativity of anions and molar composition of halides are the other factors influencing radiolysis.
