The mechanisms of radiation damage in epoxy resin, especially the primary processes, have been studied by a time-resolved spectroscopic technique (pulse radiolysis). The difference between the radiation resistance of aromatic and aliphatic amine curing epoxy resin is explained by internal radiation protection effects due to energy and charge transfer on the basis of the time-resolved spectroscopic data of reactive intermediate (excited states and ions) in an irradiated epoxy resin.
