Radiation chemistry is a term reserved to represent the chemical consequences of absorbing high energy radiations such as [gamma] rays, electrons, neutrons and [alpha] particles.
The radiation chemistry brought out by high energy electrons is very much similar to that induced by photon sources such as X-rays and 7-rays.
Now we will go into the details of the radiation chemistry of the most ubiquitous system, viz, water.
The measurement of absorbed dose of energy in radiation chemistry is known as dosimetry.
Fundamental research in radiation chemistry was centered on identifying the initial species formed, determining their rate constants of formation and decay, and pinpointing the sequential events following the absorption of radiation.
