      Abstract:

      Ex situ experiments were performed to quantitatively determine   the effect of Ce(III) on the generation of hydroxyl HO[] radicals   and of carbon-centered radical adducts in Nafion dispersions   exposed to HO[] radicals, and on the generation of the RCF2CF2   radicals in Nafion membranes during the photo-Fenton   reaction.  Addition of Ce(III) has profound effects on the   decrease of radical fragments in Nafion membrane and membrane   dispersions.  The rate constant for scavenging of hydroxyl   radicals by Ce(III), 6 x 108 M/s, was determined in spin trapping   experiments.
