The -radiolysis of solutions of benzene and naphthalene in carbon tetrachloride has been studied to obtain information about chlorination reactions. The position of naphthalene showed a reactivity 2.5 higher with respect to benzene, while the absence of 2-chloronaphthalene among the products confirmed the relatively high activation energy required for the attack in position.

The radiolysis of aqueous benzene solutions was carried out at 35 °C, 45 °C, 55 °C, and 65 °C. The results, obtained by coupling HPLC and GC separations, showed that the yields of all the radiolysis products increased with temperature. However, the comparison of the results must be limited to those compounds that are formed exclusively in aqueous solutions. It was found that the increase of the relative concentrations of the products with the temperature followed the order: nitrobenzene>phenol>o-nitrophenol >p-nitrophenol.
