The effect of temperature on the yields of 1,2-alkanediols in the γ-radiolysis of the methanol(or ethanol)–formaldehyde (0.9 M) systems and on the yields of 1,2-alkanediols, carbonyl compounds, methanol, and ethanol in the γ-radiolysis of the 1-propanol(or 2-propanol)–formaldehyde (1 M) systems was studied over the range 373–473 K. It was found that the temperature dependence of the yields of 1,2-butanediol and 2-methyl-1,2-propanediol exhibited maximums at 423 and 373 K, respectively.
