Abstract : Work upon the effects of gamma irradiation on fluorocarbon polymers and small molecules is summarized, including a list of publications. Recent extensions are mentioned. The subject matter includes physical properties (principally zero-strength-times and tensile strengths); volatile products; effects of oxygen and chlorine atmospheres; radiation chemistry of perfluoroheptane, hexafluorobenzene and mixtures; sensitizing of radiation--induced polymerization; and yields of radicals by electron spin resonance.
