Abstract : The computer program described in this report was designed to help the radiation chemist kinetically evaluate his data. Although the program, PR III, was specifically designed for data evaluation in pulse radiolysis, it may be modified to process data obtained with much lower dose rates than those encountered in pulse radiolysis, e.g. radioactive isotope radiation sources. The program assumes that all reactive species are homogeneously distributed in solution and requires as input the initial concentration of all species that will 'react' during the course of the calculation. In addition, the yield of all species produced by the radiation is a required input.
