Abstract : The authors hoped to be able to resolve and subsequently correlate the elements of the alpha-proton- and the 14N-hyperfine splitting tensors in the free radical (NG2(+))(NH2)C-NH-C(H)(CO2(-)), which they expected to be trapped in gamma-irradiated single crystals of glycocyamine (guanidinoacetic acid). Their e.s.r. measurements at room temperature confirmed that the free radical trapped in the crystal had the expected structure but they were able to resolve only the alpha-proton hyperfine splittings.
