Abstract

The formation of amino acid from maleic acid and ammonia aqueous solution by 60Co γ-ray irradiation has been studied.
The irradiated solutions were analyzed by paper electrophoresis and amino acid analyzer. Aspartic acid was identified and estimated by spectrophotometry. The yield of aspartic acid formed was found to be dependent on the radiation dose and the concentrations of maleic acid and ammonia. The reaction mechanism was proposed as the combination of radicals induced by radiation.
