Abstract:

THE SENSITIVITY OF NUCLEAR TRACK-RECORDING PLASTICS MAY BE MODIFIED BY MOLECULAR DESIGN. SUBSTITUTION OF GROUPS ADJACENT TO RADIATION-SENSITIVE BONDS AND INTRODUCTION OF NEW CENTRES OF INSTABILITY SHOULD GREATLY INCREASE THE SENSITIVITY TO IONIZING RADIATION. MODIFICATION TO THE CR-39 MONOMER WILL BE CONSIDERED BECAUSE THE POLYMER PRODUCED FROM IT IS BY FAR THE BEST PLASTIC TRACK DETECTOR YET DISCOVERED. EASE OF SYNTHESIS, READY AVAILABILITY OF STARTING MATERIALS, AND EASE OF PURIFICATION ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN CHOOSING THE BEST SYSTEM FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT.
