Abstract : The effect of dose rate in the irradiationinduced polymerization of vinyl monomer systems is indicated as follows: (1) is a function of the monomer system, (2) is interdependent on the experimental conditions and operational parameters, and (3) does not follow the kI(1/2) formulation for the monomer systems studied under the experimental conditions and opertional parameters employed.
