The radical species derived from cyclopentane, cyclopentenes and cyclohexenes by 60Co γ-ray irradiation at 77 K in halocarbon matrices have been studied by ESR spectroscopy. The electronic and geometrical structures of the radical species are discussed on the basis of the experimental hyperfine coupling constants and semiempirical MO calculations. Exposure of the tetramethylsilane frozen solution containing cyclopentene to 60Co γ-rays produced specifically 3-cyclopenten-l-yl.
