Energy Transfer in Irradiated Alkyl Disulfides

  author={Frank K. Truby},
An electron spin resonance study was made on a series of gamma- irradiated n-alkyl disulfides to determine the ability of energy imparted randomly to such molecules to be localized at the sulfur. The compounds studied were methyl, amyl, octyl, and octadecyl disulfide. Results showed that all of the compounds contain unpaired electrons localized at the sulfur. The energy imparted to the alkyl disulfides irradiated at - 196 deg C in the ball form appear to migrate down the carbon chain in a… CONTINUE READING
