Abstract  

In the present work, the radiation-induced color bleaching of Remazol brilliant blue (RBB), Wegocet orange (WO), Methyl green (Me G) and Thioflavine S (Th S) dyes solutions was studied. Solutions of these dyes in different solvents were found to obey Beer’s law within certain concentration levels. The % color bleaching occurring in different dye solutions on using different gamma irradiation doses was determined and the data obtained showed the existence of good linear relationships among them in the four dye systems used. The linear sections lines were used as calibration curves for evaluating unknown gamma irradiation doses. From the obtained results, it was concluded that RBB in water, WO in ethanol, Me G in butanol and Th S in 60% ethanol–water mixture could be used for dose evaluation within the dose ranges 5–25 kGy for RBB, 20–90 kGy for WO, 10–70 kGy for Me G and 5–160 kGy for Th S. The sensitivity of the systems towards gamma radiations has been also reported.
