Different Nd-zeolites were prepared from the original NaX and NaY zeolites by ion exchange. The hydrated and thermally activated (at 550 °C) samples obtained were irradiated with -rays of 1.5 and 10.0 Mrad. The unirradiated and irradiated samples were characterized mainly by X-ray diffraction and tested for catalytic activity in cumene cracking. The X-ray diffraction patterns indicated a slight decrease of crystallinity after irradiation. However, the irradiated samples exhibited higher catalytic activities than unirradiated ones. -Irradiated hydrated zeolites were found to possess comparable activities, whereas the irradiated dehydrated samples were more active. Higher irradiation doses resulted in more active dehydrated zeolites than those irradiated with a lower dose. The observed higher activity was attributed to the formation of tricoordinate aluminium atoms in the zeolite structure, leading to increase of the number of acidic sites and consequently to a catalytic activity.

Catalytic activity of gamma irradiated catalase from bovine liver was studied for hydrogen peroxide decomposition at constant
temperature and pressure. The measurement was performed at temperatures 27, 32, 37, 42 and 47 °C. Solutions containing 1 and
0.01 g dm−3 of catalase in phosphate buffer were used for the study. Repeatability of both sample preparation and kinetics measurement
was experimentally verified. Rate constants of the reaction were determined for all temperatures and the activation energy
was evaluated from Arrhenius plot. Gamma irradiation was performed using 60Co radionuclide source Gammacell 220 at two different dose rates 5.5 and 70 Gy h−1, with doses ranging from 10 to 1000 Gy. The observed reaction of irradiated and non-irradiated catalase with hydrogen peroxide
is of the first order. Irradiation significantly decreases catalytic activity of catalase, but the activation energy does
not depend markedly on the dose. The effect of irradiation is more significant at higher dose rate.
