The yield of scavengeable electrons produced by γ-irradiation in mixtures of cyclopentane and methylcyclohexane at −196°C has been determined by electron-scavenging experiments with bromobenzene. It has been found that the maximum yield of scavengeable electrons in these mixture glasses increases with an increase in the cyclopentane concentration and that it reaches the total ionization yield in a liquid hydrocarbon. The implication of these results for the yield of radiation-induced ionization in condensed systems is discussed.
