The volatile iodine production due to radiation chemical effects in the containment vessel of light water reactors (LWRs) during severe accidents was investigated by experiments in small scale and with well controlled conditions. Cesium iodide solutions, 10$$^{-4}$$M, labeled with $$^{131}$$I, at controlled pH by boric acid-sodium hydroxide buffer, were $$gamma$$-irradiated and swept with a constant gas flow rate. The gaseous iodine released from the solution was collected by species selective filters and quantified separately for I$$_2$$ and organic iodines. The influences of pH, temperature, inorganic and organic impurities, oxygen and hydrogen concentrations in the cover gas on the iodine release behavior were examined. Data including time dependent gaseous iodine release fractions, comparison of the final iodine release fractions in terms of the parameter effects, as well as the initial, boundary and interface conditions necessary for simulating the experiments by computer codes are provided.
