Because of large differences in masses the difference in probabilities- for escaping from intact trap by traversing any potential barrier, either classically or quantum mechanically, should be significant while the probabilities for destruction of a trap containing either hydrogen or deuterium atom should be similar. Thus it was assumed that the trapped species are released due to trap destruction. The probability of trap destruction due to molecular rearrangement should be lower in a more relaxed system containing fewer frozen - in configuration which are unstable at the given temperature.
23. e. anion vacancies as the addition of an electron scavenger has the same effect on reactivity distribution in both kjnds of matrices, cf. Figs. 23. To make this point clear more complete data are needed than those published (Gillis and Walker 1976; Nguen and Walker 1977; May and Walker 1978) on the total amount of electrons trapped in CaCl 2 and MgC1 2 solutions. HYDROGEN ATOMS Extensive ESR studies on trapped hydrogen atoms formed in acidic ices upon r-irradiation at low temperatures revealed that the reactivity of these atoms at a given temperature decreases with time (Sprague and Schulte-Frohlinde 1973; Kroh and Plonka 1975) and depends upon the temperature at which they were formed (Kroh and Plonka 1975).
At about 100 K the recombination rate increases abruptly. In this temperature range there is the first peak of thermally stimulated current (TSC) observed upon heating of water vapour condensate (Onsager et al. 1978). It is directly related to dipolar relaxation processes in the condensate and decreases markedly with the increase of condensation temperature. At the same temperature there is observed the first peak of thermally stimulated depolarization (TSD) current for polycrystalline ice (Johari and Jones 1975).
