This paper reports on the qualitative and quantitative analyses of light hydrocarbons produced by radiation degradation of N,N-diethylhydroxylamine. The results show that when the absorbed doses are between 10 and 1000 kGy, the main light hydrocarbons are methane, ethane, ethene, propane and n-butane. Their volume fractions are increased with the increase of the dose. The volume fraction of ethene is also increased at low doses with the increase of the dose, but it is decreased with the increase of dose at high doses.
