Analysis of radicals induced in irradiated amino acid using Pulse-ESR

Kishida, Keigo*; Kikuchi, Masahiro; Nakamura, Hideo*; Kobayashi, Yasuhiko; Ukai, Mitsuko*

Radiation induced radicals in irradiated foods were analyzed with Pulse-ESR. The specimens were rice and wheat flour. We also analyzed 22 kinds of amino acids contained in foods to compare with the food specimens. Radiation dose level was 50,100 and 200 kGy. We could not detect any signals in all specimens before irradiation treatment. Upon radiation treatment one broad signal was detected. Using Pulse-ESR, we succeeded to detect field swept echo signal in some irradiated amino acid specimens and to analyze the relaxation times (T$$_{1}$$ and T$$_{2}$$). It is concluded that ESR is very useful to analyze the radiation induced radicals in irradiated foods.
