Abstract

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document.

Part I consists of the measurement of the angular dependence of the anisotropic C13 hyperfine interactions in the radical [...]. The above radical is formed when perdeutero malonic acid is subjected to x-ray damage. The deuterated radical's EPR spectra are compared with those of the protonated radical. In addition it was possible, because of the large anisotropy in the C13 interaction, to identify and determine the orientation of another radical formed. The second radical is [...] (or [...]) and is found to have two orientations in the crystal lattice.

In Part II the rate of electron transfer between vanadium (IV) and vanadium (V) is determined by [...] nuclear resonance line broadening. The rate of transfer was found to be first order in vanadium (IV) and second order in vanadium (V). The rate constant for the exchange reaction in 6.5 F acid solution is k= 1.5 x 10(6) [...].
