The ESR technique was used to study the influence of dose rate and oxygen on the radiation induced effects on an ethylene-propylene loaded with antioxidant characterized by an NH functional group. It was shown that the oxidative degradation takes place during irradiation and the oxidation products increase with decreasing dose rate [H. Kashiwabara and T. Seguchi, in: Radiation Processing of Polymers, eds. A. Singh and J. Silverman (Hanser, 1992)]. © 1995.
