Abstract

Carbon-11 is produced by the C{sup 12} ({gamma}, n)Cu{sup 11} reaction in the Bremsstrahlung beam of a 70 MeV electron synchrotron. As target materials, liquid hydrocarbons with 5 and 6 carbons have been used, including normal, branched and alicyclic pentanes and hexanes as well as benzene. The behaviour of Cu{sup 11} has been studied by gas chromatographic separation of the products, counting the Cu{sup 11} in the gas stream in a cell placed in a well-type scintillation counter. In each experiment yields of different products were compared to the yield of acetylene as an internal standard and either to a tantalum monitor or to the total Cu{sup 11} produced as measured in the entire sample before separation. The flow counters were calibrated in terms of total Cu{sup 11} produced in experiments in which the complete sample was burned to CO{sub 2} and passed through a flow counter. Our earlier experiments were concerned only with the gaseous products that have now been well characterized for the various target molecules under different dosage conditions. Current experiments on product molecules similar in size to the target have proved very helpful in deciding on mechanisms for recombination of recoil atoms. Of particular interest is  More>>

The behaviour of Cu{sup 11} has been studied by gas chromatographic separation of the products, counting the Cu{sup 11} in the gas stream in a cell placed in a well-type scintillation counter. In each experiment yields of different products were compared to the yield of acetylene as an internal standard and either to a tantalum monitor or to the total Cu{sup 11} produced as measured in the entire sample before separation. The flow counters were calibrated in terms of total Cu{sup 11} produced in experiments in which the complete sample was burned to CO{sub 2} and passed through a flow counter. Our earlier experiments were concerned only with the gaseous products that have now been well characterized for the various target molecules under different dosage conditions. Current experiments on product molecules similar in size to the target have proved very helpful in deciding on mechanisms for recombination of recoil atoms. Of particular interest is the yield of product with one carbon more than the target,the result of an addition reaction. The location of the additional atom on a target molecule having several types of addition sites gives information regarding the process itself. When the recoil atom is slowed to an energy at which it is possible for a bond to be formed, at least temporarily, the extra energy which the Cu{sup 11} atom brings into the system may cause bond rupture elsewhere within the activated complex usually leading to a two-carbon product. If the complex is able to hold together without rupturing, an additional product will result. Thus comparison of the yields of two-carbon compounds, acetylene, ethylene and ethane, and the additional products provides valuable information regarding the energy at which stable bond formation can occur, and the nature of the Cu{sup 11} -containing group entering into the reaction. (author) [French] Le carbone-11 est produit par la reaction {sup 12}C({gamma}, n){sup 11}C dans le rayonnement de freinage d'un synchrotron a electrons de 70 MeV. Comme cible, les auteurs ont utilise des hydrocarbures liquides a 5 et 6 atomes de carbone, notamment les pentanes et hexanes normaux, ramifies et alicycliques ainsi que le benzene. Ils ont etudie le comportement de {sup 11}C en separant les produits par chromatographie gazeuse et en comptant le {sup 11}C dans le courant de gaz a l'interieur d'une cellule placee dans un compteur a scintillations a puits. Lors de chaque experience, ils ont compare les rendements en divers produits au rendement en acetylene, utilise comme etalon interne, et, soit a un dispositif de controle au tantale, soit a la mesure de la quantite totale de {sup 11}C produite dans l'ensemble de l'echantillon avant separation. Ils ont etalonne les compteurs a courant gazeux en tenant compte de la quantite totale de {sup 11}C qui est produite pendant les experiences au cours desquelles le carbone de l'echantillon est entierement transforme en CO{sub 2} par combustion, et qui passe dans un compteur de ce type. Les experiences que les auteurs avaient faites anterieurement ne portaient que sur les produits gazeux qui sont maintenant bien determines pour diverses molecules cibles dans differentes conditions de dosage. Les experiences en cours sur des molecules de produit d'une dimension semblable a celle de la cible se sont revelees tres utiles pour determiner les mecanismes de recombinaison des atomes de recul. Le rendement en produit comportant un atome de carbone de plus que la cible, qui est le resultat d'une reaction d'addition, revet un interet particulier. L'emplacement de l'atome supplementaire dans une molecule cible possedant plusieurs emplacements possibles pour l'addition de cet atome fournit des renseignements sur le processus lui-meme. Lorsque le ralentissement de l'atome de recul est suffisant pour qu'une liaison puisse se former, au moins provisoirement, l'energie supplementaire que l'atome de {sup 11}C communique au systeme peut provoquer ailleurs dans le complexe active une rupture de liaison donnant habituellement naissance a un produit a deux atomes de carbone. Si le complexe peut se maintenir sans rupture, il en resultera un produit d'addition. Ainsi, en comparant les rendements en composes a deux atomes de carbone (acetylene, ethylene et ethane) a celui en produits d'addition, on obtient des renseignements precieux sur l'energie qui permet la formation d'une liaison stable et la nature du groupe contenant {sup 11}C qui entre dans la reaction. (author) [Spanish] Se obtuvo carbono-11 por la reaccion {sup 12}C ({gamma}, n){sup 11}C en el haz de radiacion de frenado de un sincrotron de 70 MeV que acelera electrones. Como blanco se utilizaron hidrocarburos liquidos de 5 y 6 atomos de carbono, entre ellos pentanos y hexanos normales, ramificados y alicfclicos, asi como benceno. Se estudio el comportamiento del {sup 11}C separando los productos por cromatografia en fase gaseosa y contando el {sup 11}C en la corriente gaseosa de una celda colocada en un contador de centelleo de tipo cavidad. En cada experimento se compararon los rendimientos de los diferentes productos al rendimiento de acetileno utilizado como patron interno, asi como o bien al de un monitor de tantalo o bien al {sup 11}C total producido y determinado en la muestra integra antes de la separacion. Los contadores de flujo se calibraron en funcion del {sup 11}C total producido en experimentos en que el carbono de la muestra se transformo totalmente en CO{sub 2} por combustion y se hizo pasar por un contador del mencionado tipo. Los experimentos anteriores de los autores versaron exclusivamente sobre los productos gaseosos que ahora se hallan bien caracterizados para diferentes moleculas blanco en distintas condiciones de dosificacion. Los experimentos en curso sobre moleculas analogas en tamano a las del blanco han contribuido a la aclaracion de los mecanismos de recombinacion de los atomos de retroceso. Particular interes reviste el rendimiento de productos con un atomo de carbono mas que el blanco, que resultan de una reaccion de adicion. La localizacion del atomo adicional en una molecula blanco que tenga varios lugares de adicion proporciona informacion sobre la naturaleza del proceso. Cuando el atomo de retroceso es moderado y su energia disminuye hasta el punto en que es posible la formacion de un enlace, al menos temporal, el exceso de energia que el atomo llC cede al sistema puede originar la ruptura de otros enlaces del complejo activado, lo que suele dar origen a un producto de dos atomos de carbono. Si el complejo es capaz de conservar su integridad, suele resultar un producto de adicion. Por tanto, la comparacion del rendimiento de compuestos de dos atomos de carbono (acetileno, etileno y etano) y de productos de adicion proporciona una informacion valiosa sobre la energia a la que pueden formarse enlaces estables, y sobre la naturaleza del grupo que contiene el {sup 11}C y que participa en la reaccion. (author) [Russian] Uglerod-11 obrazuetsja v rezul'tate reakcii C{sup 12}({gamma}, n)C{sup 11} v puchke tormoznogo izluchenija v sinhrotrone s jenergiej jelektronov 70 Mjev. V kachestve veshhestva misheni primenjalis' zhidkie uglevodorody s pjat'ju i shest'ju atomami ugleroda, v tom chisle normal'nye razvetvlennye i aliciklicheskie pentany i geksany, a takzhe benzol. Povedenie C{sub 11} izuchalos' metodom gazohromatograficheskogo razdelenija produktov, scheta aktivnosti C{sub 11} v gazovom potoke v kamere, pomeshhennoj v scintilljacionnyj schetchik kanal'nogo tipa. V kazhdom jeksperimente vyhody razlichnyh produktov sravnivalis' s vyhodom acetilena kak vnutrennego standarta, a takzhe libo s pokazanijami registratora tantala, libo s obshhim kolichestvom obrazovavshegosja C{sub 11}, izmerennym vo vsem obrazce pered razdeleniem. Protochnye schetchiki kalibrovalis' pri uslovii obrazovanija vsego Si v hode jeksperimentov, v processe kotoryh ves' obrazec szhigalsja, prevrashhajas' v CO{sub 2}, i prohodil cherez protochnyj schetchik. Nashi bolee rannie jeksperimenty byli svjazany tol'ko s ispol'zovaniem gazoobraznyh produktov, kotorye v nastojashhee vremja horosho zarekomendovali sebja v otnoshenii molekul razlichnyh veshhestv misheni pri raznyh znachenijah dozy. Tekushhie jeksperimenty s proizvodnymi molekulami, podobnymi po razmeru molekulam materiala misheni, okazalis' ochen' poleznymi pri izuchenii voprosa o mehanizmah rekombinacii atomov otdachi. Osobyj interes predstavljaet vyhod produkta s odnim atomom ugleroda bol'she po sravneniju s mishen'ju, chto javljaetsja rezul'tatom novoj reakcii. Raspolozhenie dopolnitel'nogo atoma v molekule veshhestva misheni, kotoroe harakterizuetsja nalichiem neskol'kih dopolnitel'nyh tochek, daet informaciju otnositel'no samogo processa. Pri zamedlenii atoma otdachi do velichiny jenergii, pri kotoroj vozmozhno ustanovlenie svjazi, po krajnej mere vremenno, izlishnjaja jenergija, kotoruju prinosit v sistemu atom C{sub 11}, mozhet privesti k razryvu svjazi gde-libo v drugom meste v predelah aktiviruemogo kompleksa, chto obychno privodit k obrazovaniju dvuhuglerodnogo produkta. Esli kompleks mozhet byt' sohranen bez razryva, to obrazuetsja dopolnitel'nyj produkt. Takim obrazom, sravnenie vyhodov dvuhuglerodnyh soedinenij, acetilena, jetilena i jetana i dopolnitel'nyh produktov predostavljaet cennuju informaciju otnositel'no jenergii, pri kotoroj vozmozhno obrazovanie ustojchivoj svjazi, i haraktera soderzhashhej C{sub 11} gruppy, vstupajushhej v reakciju.
