Abstract

The effect of O2 on the photochemistry of aqueous iodide solutions was investigated. O2 was found to act as a scavenger for both electrons and H atoms. The reaction mechanisms are discussed and kinetic data for the reaction of O2 with electrons and H atoms are derived. The photochemical results are compared with data from radiation chemistry.
