Free Radicals in X-Irradiated Ethylene Glycol Crystals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


ESR experiments aiming at clarifying the structure of radicals present in X-irradiated crystals of ethylene glycol and other diols are reported. By comparison with data for the corresponding glasses it is concluded that a major source of free radicals is the decomposition of trapped electrons. The radical structure is identified.
