The Radiation-Induced Addition of Tritium to Unsaturated Systems

  • Robert F. Nystrom


The importance of the Wilzbach gas exposure technique for the tritium labeling of a wide variety of organic and biological compounds is well established. When the compounds being irradiated by this method contain an unsaturated carbon linkage, one of the more important side reactions is the addition of tritium. In some cases, which will be discussed later, this can be used to advantage. However, for most applications it would be desirable to prevent the addition of tritium to unsaturated systems.
