Abstract : Glass and polycrystalline ethyl iodide at 77K were irradiated with cobalt 60. Yields of free radicals were measured with an electron paramagnetic resonance spectrometer. G values for radicals in glass and polycrystalline phases were 1.53 and 0.33. Hydrocarbon reaction products were separated by Toepler pumping and measured with a mass spectrometer. Products containing iodine were measured by spectrophotometric methods. Ethene-ethane and hydrogen iodide-iodine product ratios were much higher in the polycrystalline phase than in the glass phase, and higher in the glass phase than in previous results from the liquid phase.
