Abstract : The radiolytic conversions in aqueous solutions resulting from reactions of dissolved substances with the radiolysis products of water are discussed. Research on the physical and chemical processes of hydration is outlined and illustrated by elaborations on hydrated electrons, OH and HO2 radicals, the kinetics of excited water, H2 and H2O2 molecular products and maximum yields from water decomposition.
