Abstract : This compendium provides a comprehensive summary of data relevant to the radiation chemistry of gaseous ammonia. A complete mechanism for the radiolysis of ammonia cannot be written at present. However, probable contributing processes are discussed in some detail and the supporting evidence is examined critically when possible. Specific rates and/or energies of activation for these elementary processes are given when available but in general such data are not critically evaluated. Properties such as bond energies, ionization energies and electron affinities are tabulated for the major intermediates (app. 1). Such data have for the most part been taken from authoritative reference sources and are presented without critical comment. Preferred values are given for yields of both products and intermediates.
