Abstract

The gamma irradiation of mixtures of carbon dioxide with ethylene yielded long-chain carboxylic acids. The G(-ethylene) values varied with reaction temperature from essentially zero at -78 degrees C to 175 at 100 degrees C. Under the same conditions, the substitution of free radical agents for radiation gave polyethylene.
