Pulse radiolysis has been carried out to identify the transient species produced by the pulsed electron irradiation for the several kinds of combination of the solutions of aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, naphthalene and pyrene) in chlorinated hydrocarbons (CCl4, CHCl3, and CH2Cl2). Charge-transfer complex between aromatic ring and Cl atom has been observed for benzene solutions in above three solvents. Naphthalene monomer and dimer cation radicals have been observed for the solutions in CHCl3 and CH2Cl2. Monomer cation radicals of pyrene has been observed for the solution of pyrene in CCl4, and monomer and dimer cation radicals of pyrene have been observed for the solutions in CHCl3 and CH2Cl2.
