Radiation Effects: ESR and ENDOR Analysis presents an explanation of the biological effects of radiation. The book discusses the characteristics of the electron spin resonance (ESR) and electron-nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectra, such as radiation damage and magnetic resonance spectroscopy, g values, hyperfine couplings, and other special effects. The text also describes the radiation effects and damage mechanisms; as well as the free radicals produced in the primary oxidative process initiated by ionizing radiation, in the primary reductive process initiated by ionizing radiation, and via excitation effects. The classification of the mechanisms of radiation damage by various other secondary processes is also considered. The secondary processes include reactions of hydrogen atoms; reactions of hydroxyl radicals; electron or proton transfer; conformational changes; abstraction, transfer, migration, and exchange of hydrogen; radical addition reactions; and radical pair formation. Some examples of overall mechanisms, such as the overall radiation chemistry of carboxylic acids and the radiation chemistry of protein and nucleic acid constituents, are described. People involved in energy and cancer research will find the book invaluable.
