Investigation of radiation sensitivity of some tartrate compounds
MetadataShow full item record
Potential electron spin resonance (ESR) dosimetric application of different compounds of sodium tartrate, such as sodium tartrate dihydrate, sodium bitartrate monohydrate and potassium sodium tartrate tetrahydrate, was investigated in the range of 0.74-25 Gy. While the radiation-induced intermediates produced in these compounds are similar, their radiation yields are different. It is found that the radiation yield of sodium tartrate dihydrate is higher than other compounds of sodium tartrates. Comparison of the radiation yields were also made between well-known samples of ammonium tartrate, alanine and lithium formate. It is found that the radiation yields of sodium tartrate dihydrate, sodium bitartrate monohydrate and potassium sodium tartrate tetrahydrate have the values of 1.22, 0.18 and 0.13, respectively.
