Title: THE DECOMPOSITION OF SOLID NITRATES BY X-RAYS

Abstract

The yield of nitrite in the decomposition by x-rays of the alkali nitrates, strontium nitrate, barium nitrate and silver nitrate has been measured. In several cases the variation of yield with temperature has been investigated. Potassium nitrate has been irradiated up to high percentage decompositions and at a variety of temperatures. The changes in infra-red absorption spectrum and x- ray diffraction pattern of nitrates due to irradiation are described. (auth)
