35th Annual CNS Conference - 2015 May 31 - June 3

Presented at:
35th Annual CNS Conference
2015 May 31 - June 3
Saint John, Canada
Session Title:
2B3 - Chemistry and Materials

In 2002, Ghandi and co-workers proposed a model that includes an efficiency factor to account for the "cage effect". This model reproduces the plateau observed in available experimental data. Our group is working on reviewing all the reactions considered in the report submitted by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited in 2009 based on the cage effect model, in order to provide recommendations for the values of rate constants to use in modeling of water radiolysis reactions past the critical point. In this paper, we will be focusing on the very fast reactions that are diffusion controlled past the critical point.
