Abstract The effect of cyclohexane and benzene on the radiolysis of CH/sub 3/ COOCH/sub 3/, CH/sub 3/COOCD/sub 3/, and mixtures of CH/sub 3/COCH/sub 3/CD/sub 3/ COCD/sub 3/ was investigated at 17 deg . In the absence of scavengers, cyclohexane markedly reduces the yield of CO, whereas, in the presence of scavengers, it produces no effect. Benzene inhibits the decomposition of methyl acetate and acetone. Hydrogen is mostly formed in processes involving "hot" hydrogen atoms. The effect of the solvents on the yields of ethanes and some of the methanes indicates the impontance of cage and intercage recombinations and dispropontionations of the radicals in the gamma -ray track. The radiolysis of a CH/sub 3/COCH/sub 3/- CD/sub 3/COCD/sub 3/ mixture at -195 deg is discussed briefly. (auth)
