When radiolysis occurs, sufficient oxygen is formed to support a fire or explosion in the presence of an ignition source.
Our results are in accordance with those of earlier studies, which have demonstrated that irradiation increased lipid oxidation in meat products by producing hydroxyl radicals formed mainly due to water radiolysis (Quattara et al.
Among four possible ways of gas generation (corrosion of metal components, microbial degradation, radiolysis and radioactive decay), anaerobic corrosion of the steel components in the engineered barrier system (EBS) is a dominant source of hydrogen gas.
Cholesterol by radiolysis by actinides would have formed PAH generating PAH aromatic organism [8].
2]O into hydrogen and oxygen, a process known as radiolysis.
Their topics include the structure and dynamics of solvated electrons, a history of pulse-radiolysis time-resolved microwave conductivity studies, chemical processes in heavy ion tracks, ultrafast pulse radiolysis methods, pulse radiolysis in supercritical krypton and xenon fluids, radiation-induced processes at solid-liquid interfaces, femtosecond events in bimolecular free electron transfer, the chemistry of sulfur-centered radicals, indirect effects of radiation-induced DNA damage, and radiation chemistry applied to antioxidant research.
Cassini's data show that molecular oxygen (O2) forms inside the moon's surface ice when water molecules (H2O) are split by energetic ions, a process known as radiolysis.
These free radicals are formed from the radiolysis of water which constitutes about 80% of human body.
Direct methods such as pulse radiolysis and electron-spin resonance spectroscopy have been useful for many systems of the body but have limitations in their use in the male reproductive system.
The rationale stems from early radiolysis studies that determined the mechanisms by which excess hydrogen promotes back-reactions with radical species formed by the reaction of radiation with water in the core, so that potentially damaging products such as oxygen or hydrogen peroxide are avoided.
The chemical changes caused by gamma irradiation in proteins were fragmentation, cross-linking, aggregation, and oxidation by oxygen radicals generated in the radiolysis of water (Davis and Delsignore, 1987).
Excited states and free radicals in biology and medicine, contribution from flash photolysis and pulse radiolysis.
2] is confirmed, then the absence of the o-Ps-component in liquid and solid deuterium could be explained on the basis that it is quenched by radiolysis products with net charge and spin, in a "blast hole" of charged products of nuclear synthesis which carry off a total energy of a few MeV per event.
