Detection of short-lived muonium in liquids via spin trapping

  • E. Roduner
Muonium Radicals


The radiolytical fate of energetic positive muons injected in liquids is investigated using transverse field μSR. Transient, near thermal muonium is detected by means of spin trapping with 2,3-dimethylbutadiene in cyclohexane, tetramethylsilane, acetonitrile, dimethylsulfoxide, dimethylformamide and chloroform, but not in dimethylthioformamide, carbontetrachloride and carbondisulfide. Two muonated free radicals are assigned to Mu adducts to C=S double bonds.
