Succinic anhydride single crystals were exposed to Co-60-gamma irradiation at room temperature. The irradiated single crystals were investigated at 125 K by Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Spectroscopy. The investigation of EPR spectra of irradiated single crystals of succinic anhydride showed the presence of two succinic anhydride anion radicals. The anion radicals observed in gamma-irradiated succinic anhydride single crystal were created by the scission of the carbon-oxygen double bond. The structure of EPR spectra demonstrated that the hyperfine splittings arise from the same radical species. The reduction of succinic anhydride was identified which is formed by the addition of an electron to oxygen of the C-O bond. The g values, the hyperfine structure constants and direction cosines of the radiation damage centers observed in succinic anhydride single crystal were obtained. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V.
