Abstract

In the radiolysis of cyclopentane, cyclohexane and cyclooctane, changing the irradiating particles from γ-rays to heavy ions, there are indications for the increase of the proportion of the H atom forming reaction at the expense of the reactions leading to H2 molecule elimination and to radical production without participation of H atoms. This shift is attributed to changes in charge recombination with the increasing LET from basically geminate recombination to predominantly cross combination. The iodine scavenging results are similar in the three systems which is attributed to the basically diffusion controlled character of the competing reactions.
