  • The objects of investigation were single crystals of L-α-alanine, in which radical anion CH3 C˙H CO2− has been formed by radiation induced deamination of alanine. Previously, this stable radical has been spectrally identified (λmax, ε=1100 M−1·cm−1), and its characteristics have found to be identical with characteristics of the same radical obtained by pulse radiolysis in aqueous solution. The mechanism of radical formation in the solid state is not known. Time resolved pulse radiolysis of… CONTINUE READING
