The radiolysis of air-free ethylene glycol diacetate by 60Co γ-rays has been studied at room temperature. The following results have been obtained : a) irradiation gives five gaseous products and six liquid products; b) the G value of the total of all the gaseous products is 2.18; c) the G value of the EGDA decomposition is 2.5. The effect of DPPH addition on the radiolytic products, the relation between radiolytic products and the mass spectrum of unirradiated EGDA, and the ESR spectrum of irradiated EGDA have also been studied. No remarkable difference in the products has been found between EGDA and various monoacetates except in the gaseous products, the yields from EGDA being 1/2–1/3 of those from methyl acetate.
