Mössbauer study on the gamma radiolysis of lithium trisoxalatoferrate (III) pentahydrate

  • J. Ladriere
  • V. Senterre


The final iron product of the 60-Co gamma radiolysis of lithium trisoxalatoferrate(III) pentahydrate has been identified by Mössbauer spectroscopy as FeC2O4.2H2O. Quantitative chemical and Mössbauer analyses show that the radiolytic decomposition proceeds as a first order reaction as a function of the absorbed dose. Chemical calibration of the relative peaks areas of the two iron species indicates that the corresponding Lamb–Mössbauer factors ratio is unaffected by the radiolysis.
