  1. 1.

    Under the influence of fast electrons a mixture of carbon dioxide and hydrogen is converted to carbon monoxide, glyoxal and other products.

  2. 2.

    The mechanism of the radiolysis consists in the decomposition of CO2 to CO and O, caused by the involvement of molecular hydrogen in the reaction.
