Abstract  

A kinetic study of isothermal step annealing of neutron-irradiated sodium nitroprusside has been performed. The influence of water and -irradiation on the behaviour of the compound is analyzed and compared with previous results obtained with the analogous compound Na2/Fe/CN/5NO/.2H2O. It is possible to characterize two different fundamental processes that, in spite of occurring at two different temperatures, present the same activation energy than the hydrated system.
