gamma. radiation dosimetry in Mega rad range using sugar solution

Journal Article:

Abstract

The formation of malonaldehyde under ..gamma.. irradiation of solid sucrose and aqueous sucrose, fructose and arabinose solutions has been studied in the Mega rad range. Malonaldehyde (MA) concentration was estimated spectrophotometrically after complexing with 2-thio-barbituric acid. The effect of free radical scavengers (KI and N/sub 2/O) on the yield of MA was investigated. Of the systems studied a 5% aqueous sucrose solution gave a proportional response of MA formation with dose in 0.2 to 5 Mega rad range. A 5% aqueous solution of sucrose prepared from sucrose irradiated in solid state also gave a smooth response of MA yield with dose from 8 to 30 Mega rad. The aqueous and solid sucrose systems together can be conveniently used for dosimetry in the range of 0.2 30 Mega rad.
