The radiation-induced oxidation of stannous to stannic ion in aqueous hydrochloric acid has been studied and that this system is proposed as a chemical dosimeter for higher doses.
The amount of oxidation is proportional to the energy absorbed and the yield of stannic ion is independent of dose rate and initial stannous chloride concentration over a wide range studied, but increases when stannic con-concentration is high or oxygen is present. Mechanism for this oxidation based on G-values is discussed in terms of the primary decomposition products of water radiolysis. The results can be interpreted to mean that the stannic ion is oxidized only by OH radical. This system could be used for a chemical dosimeter having 8% reproducibility.
