The -radiolysis of IO 4 in aqueous solution and binary solutions containing iso-propanol has been studied as a function of reactant concentration and absorbed dose. The disappearance of periodate ion in the presence of alcohol is found to be higher as compared to that observed in the pure system. The trend in the G-values determined at various combinations of the reactant concentrations suggests the occurrence of a chain reaction in the radiolytic process.
