Abstract

Radiothermoluminescence (RTL) curves of alkanes have a special character: each curve is specific to a particular alkane and thus can be used for identifying it. The RTL curve of a mechanical mixture of two alkanes quantitatively coincides with the sum of the curves for the individual components of the mixture. The additivity property is lost for the mixtures prepared from a melt or chloroform solution. The loss is due to the change of the crystalline state of the mixture. An X-ray study shows that the X-ray diffractogram of such a mixture does not coincide with the sum of diffractograms of the individual components (even the crystal lattice type changes).
