Solvoluminescence /SL/ of γ-irradiated LiCl crystals have been studied in some organic solvents. The SL emission spectra of LiCl crystals were recorded in N-methyl acetamide, nitrobenzene, cyclohexanol, cyclohexanone and pure water. The total SL intensity of LiCl in various organic solvents was found to vary with the type and nature of the solvent. The results are explained on the basis of the electron-scavenging effect and complexing abilities of the solvents.
