Relaxation phenomena of radicals induced in irradiated fresh papayas

Kikuchi, Masahiro; Kakita, Daisuke*; Shimoyama, Yuhei; Ukai, Mitsuko*; Kobayashi, Yasuhiko

Electron spin resonance spectrometry of the $$gamma$$-irradiated fresh papayas followed by freeze-drying and powderization was performed. We found a strong single peak in the flesh was observed at ${it g}$ = 2.004 and attributed to organic free radicals. Using the method of Lund ${it et al.}$, relaxation times of the peak from 0 to 14 days-stored samples after $$gamma$$-irradiation were calculated. T$$_{2}$$ showed a dose response, while T$$_{1}$$ kept almost constant by the increment of doses. The $$gamma$$-radiation-induced radicals showing progressive saturation behaviors can be caused through a different pathway from indirect effects by the low LET radiations.
