Abstract : Aqueous solutions of nicotinic acid at concentrations of 1, 2, and 4 mg% were irradiated with 800 krad of gamma-radiation at a dose rate of 600 rad/sec. The stability of nicotinic acid was then determined. Statistical treatment of the data by the method of dispersion analysis showed a high statistically reliable difference in the radio-resistance of pure nicotinic acid solutions in comparison to mixtures of nicotinic acid and ascorbic acid.
