Comments P.810 right column bottom paragraph: "Free amino acids exposed to γ -irradiation (e.g. 60Co) in the presence of O2 can give high hydroperoxide yields with these being formed in a radiation dose-dependent manner [primary source 135, refs 13,115,116,134,136]. Exclusion of O2 prevents their formation. The levels detected with all the common free amino acids are summarized in Table 7 [primary source 135], with the maximum levels corresponding to ∼40% of the initial HO•, under conditions where all the HO• should be scavenged by the amino acids (>∼10 mM) [ref 134, primary source 135]."
