Abstract : The radiation chemistry of the trichloroethylene (TCE) system was investigated. G(H(+)) and G(Cl(-)) were determined as e(-)aq or OH. was scavenged with either hydrogen ion, ethanol, or phenol. These G values are given as functions of scavenger concentration. From this study it was shown that H. + TCE produces little if any Cl(-). It was also shown that G(H(+)) and G(Cl(-)) cannot be constants beyond 10 krad in oxygen-free solution whereas they are constants to higher doses in the presence of oxygen. (Author)
