Title: Ionization in liquids. Final technical report, November 1, 1993--December 31, 1995

Abstract

The objective of these studies which began in 1993 was to provide new information on electron and ion transport and reactions in model liquids and biomimetic systems that is pertinent to the roles of charged species in inducing radiobiological damage and to elucidate the interrelationship among the carcinogenicity, mutagenicity and electrophilicity of chemicals. This final report summarizes research efforts in the following areas: electrons in biological systems; and electron and ion transport and reactions in model liquids. In biological systems attention was focused on the following: excess electrons as probes of carcinogen electrophilicity; cost effectiveness of k{sub e} as a carcinogen-screening test; and conversion of k{sub e} to a carcinogen-screening electronic device. In model liquids, research was focused on two areas. The first investigated radiation-induced dimerization of fullerenes. The second area studied radiolytic synthesis of fullerene derivatives.
