The annealing of chemical radiation damage in 1 MGy60Co gamma irradiated tris-/ethylenediamine/cobalt/III/ nitrate has been studied at different temperatures between 100 and 150 °C. The nitrate moiety suffers very little decomposition and the damage is only partially removed under these conditions. The recovery rate is rapid in the initial period/up to 1 h/ and remains almost constant on further heating to 10 h.
