Abstract : Methyl radicals have been produced in methanol-water matrices at 77K by ultraviolet irradiation. The decay of the electron spin resonance spectra of this radical has been studied as a function of methanol concentration. It was found that the decay can be best explained by three parallel reactions, two of these reactions also being series reactions. (Author)
