Abstract : The methods of kinetic optical spectroscopy have been employed to observe the formation and decay of short-lived transients produced by pulse radiolysis of the tetra-alkyl compounds of the Group IVA metals. Time resolved transient spectra over the range of 290 nm to 620 nm are presented. The probable mechanisms of the radiation-induced molecular disruption are considered and the feasibility of using these compounds as dosimeters in the low-energy x- ray region is discussed.
