D. C. Introduction
The literature reflects ever expansive studies of radiation chemistry
over the past twenty years. However, in the application of radiation processing
to chemical reactions, in General and excepting a few isolated cases, the
yields of useful products have been so low as to preclude practical utilization.
'hua, for many reactions, radiation alone at ambient conditions is not a
sufficient agent for economical production. Hence, we are led to the investi-
gation of radiation effects on reactions at elevated temperatures and pressures
where the thermodynamics favor more extensive reactions that may be induced by
radiation. The probability of developing a successful practical radiation
process is increased when applying radiation at rigorous conditions. To have a
commercial advantage, a radiation process usually must replace an expensive
catalyst system, generate a reaction at somewhat less rigorous conditions than
is usually employed or yield a better or unique product of high value. In our
investigations, we have examined only the potential of radiation as a replace-
ment for contact catalyst.
