Title: Gamma radiolysis of hydrophilic diglycolamide ligands in concentrated aqueous nitrate solution

Abstract

Advanced analytical techniques and predictive multi-scale modeling calculations show that gamma radiolysis of hydrophilic diglycolamides in concentrated, aqueous nitrate solutions is significantly slower and less structurally sensitive than under pure water conditions.
