Generalized data on the γ-radiolysis of aliphatic C1–C4 alcohols are summarized. These data can be used for solving practical problems in the related areas of research. In particular, a rate equation that relates the radiation-chemical yield of an 1 : 1 adduct formed from saturated and unsaturated components upon the γ-radiolysis of a binary system to the concentrations of these components was derived. An equation was obtained for estimating the reaction rate constants of decay of identical hydroxyalkyl radicals in collisions with each other from the reciprocal viscosity (fluidity) of corresponding alcohols. An empirical equation for calculating the concentration of the free (desolvated) form of formaldehyde in alcohol–formaldehyde systems at various temperatures and total formaldehyde concentrations and an equation for evaluating solvent concentrations in these systems were derived.
