Abstract : An investigation was carried out to determine whether improved catalysts for the para-ortho hydrogen conversion could be obtained by radiation. In the course of this work a series of catalysts were found that were as high as ten times more effective than a standard hydrated iron oxide catalyst at -78 C. Included in this series of catalysts were two that were radiation activated. As a result of this work an improved understanding of the catalytic mechanism was obtained. (Author)
