The radiolytic oxidation of iodide ions in N2O-saturated solutions has been investigated over the range of 10-4 to 1.0 M KI. G(I2) was found to increase with iodide concentration up to 3.65 at 1 M KI. This result implies the formation of oxidizing species other than OH radicals in radiolyzed solutions. Fluoride, chloride, and bromide ions were also shown to react with these species.
