The general diffusion‐kinetic equations are applied to a one‐radical‐one‐solute model of the radiolysis of dilute aqueous solutions. The validity of the prescribed diffusion approximation is examined. Results of calculations of the effect on the molecular and radical yields of the following parameters are given: solute concentration, solute depletion, shape of initial radical distribution, radical density, diffusion coefficients, and rate constants. Conditions under which a straight track of equal and equidistant spherical spurs can be replaced by either isolated spherical spurs or an axially homogeneous cylindrical track are examined.
