The rate parameters of formation and decay of the corresponding OH-adduct and aryl-peroxy radicals in diluted water solutions of toluene, naphthalene and β-methylnaphthalene were determined. The parameter for the OH adduct formation is 5.1 x 109 mol-1 dm3 s-1 with toluene and it is 9.4 x 109 mol-1 dm3 s-1 with naphthalene. The rate parameters for peroxy radical formation are about 4 x 108 mol-1 dm3 s-1 for all compounds studied. In the dose range 5-15 Gy per pulse the decay of peroxy radicals is first order with rate parameter of ca 2 x 103 s-1.
