Abstract : An electron paramagnetic resonance study of x-ray irradiated single crystals of lithium acetate dihydrate and mercuric acetate has been made. The CH2(.)CO2(-) radical has been identified in lithium acetate dihydrate irradiated at liquid nitrogen temperature. The HCH angle was found. The principle elements of the hyperfine tensor and the g tensor were calculated. Mercuric acetate irradiated at liquid nitrogen temperature showed the presence of two CO2(-) species. Spectra at -80C showed the presence of two CH2(.)CO2(-) radicals. The principal values of the hyperfine tensor for the two magnetically distinct sites were obtained. (Author)
