Title: DETECTION OF FREE RADICALS IN X-IRRADIATED SEEDS OF VICIA FABA BY MEANS OF ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE ABSORPTION (in German)

Abstract

The free radicals in x-irradiated seeds of Vicia faba were determined from embryo, the electron spin resonance absorption. In addition to radicals with plumula, pieces of cotyledon and seed case were also tested. The seeds were irradiated with 10,000 r and cooled With liquid nitrogen. The measurements revealed no detectable radicals in the non-irradiated embryo and cotyledon, but approximately 8 x 10/sup 15/ radicals/g dry material in the seed case. In the irradiated seeds 7 x 10/sup 15/ were found in the embryo and cotyledon and 2 x 10/ sup 16/ in the seed cases. The significance of these results is briefly discussed. (J.S.R.)
