Abstract  

A comparative study on -radiolysis and energy transfer reaction induced by -irradiated sodium chloride in azo-dye indicators, viz. Methyl Orange and Methyl Red are undertaken. These indicators undergo degradation following first order kinetics, the determined rate constants being 1.05·10–8 rad–1 for Methyl Orange and 5.00·10–7 rad–1 for Methyl Red, respectively. TheG-values are also determined and are found to be lower for Methyl Orange (8.60·10–6) and higher for Methyl Red (4.05·10–3), suggesting that the former is more resistent to radiation degradation as compared to the latter.
