On the radiation resistance of crown ethers

The yields of hydrogen and ethylene from the radiolysis of 15-crown-5, 18-crown-6, dibenzo-18-crown-6, and dicyclohexyl-18-crown-6 ethers have been measured. The quantities obtained are compared with the ones for PEG-300, PEG-600 and 1,4-dioxane measured under the same conditions. The hydrogen yields range from about 1 to nearly 2 molecules per 100 eV and these of ethylene range from 0.02 to 0.15 depending on the irradiation conditions. From the viewpoint of the rate of radiation decomposition, there is no much difference between crown ethers and their analogues including 1,4-dioxane, the simplest molecule in the series.
