    Using pulse radiolysis techniques, rates of recombination of Ar2+ ions with electrons in bulk argon were measured over a wide pressure range (150 to 1065 torr) at bulk gas temperatures of 295, 335, and 375 K. No pressure dependence for the total recombination rate constant was observed at any...

    Pulse radiolysis studies on thionicotinamide (TNA) have been carried out in aqueous solutions at pH 6.8 and 1. The initial species formed by OH radical reaction with TNA at pH 6.8 was found to react with the parent molecule to give a dimer radical species (?[sub max] = 420-440 nm). Reaction of...
