EPR of gamma irradiation induced radicals in NaHCO3, CsHCO3 and Na2CO3
MetadataShow full item record
In this study gamma irradiated NaHCO3, CsHCO3 and Na2CO3 were investigated at room temperature. The radicals induced by gamma irradiation in NaHCO3 were found to be (CO3-)-O-. (HCO3-)-O-. and (CO2-)-O-.; in CsHCO3 the species were attributed to (HCO3)-O-.; and in Na2CO3 to (CO3)-O-. and (CO2-)-O-. radicals. The hyperfine parameters for the hydrogen in (HCO3)-O-., and the C-13 nucleus in (CO2-)-O-. radical have been determined. The results were compared with literature data for similar compounds and the EPR properties of the (CO2-)-O-. radical were discussed. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
