Radiolysis of Methanol and Methanolic Solutions by Co-60 Gamma-Rays

Co-60 갬마선에 의한 Methanol 및 Methanolic Solution 의 Radiolysis
Sang Up Choi

Yields of hydrogen, methane, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and ethylene glycol by gamma-radiolysis of methanol have been determined at room temperature and compared with values reported in the literature. The G-values obtained by the present studies are as follows: G(H2) = 4.98, G(CH4) = 0.28, G(CO) = 0.09, G(HCHO) = 2.14 and G(C2H6O2) = 3.07. The effects of water, methyl borate and alkali halides added to methanol prior to radiolysis have also been investigated. It is observed that alkali iodides and bromides affect the G-values, particularly, of hydrogen, formaldehyde and/or ethylene glycol, whereas alkali chlorides and fluorides have less pronounced effects.
