    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    This chapter discusses a variety of free radicals and other reactive oxygen species that are biologically and medically relevant. Radiolytic and/or photochemical methods of production for each reactive oxygen species are shown and for each type of reactive oxygen species some antioxidant and/or biomolecule interactions are discussed. Additionally, the techniques of laser flash photolysis and pulse radiolysis are described in detail and a comparison of the two techniques is made.
