9.It is true that J. L. Magee [Ann. Rev. Phys. Chem. 12, 397 (1961)] has produced arguments that the initial temperature of the spur is 50°–100 °C but that the spur cools down to practically ambient temperature in However, it must be remembered that ambient temperature in this case (of the cobalt source cavity) was about 40 °C, that the melting point of pure biphenyl is 69°, and that we are discussing a residual process which is only about 6% of the liquid‐phase processes. It does not seem impossible that 6% of the spur volume might maintain a temperature 20 °C above ambient long enough for bimolecular reactions (possibly of the ion‐molecule type) of low activation energy to take place.
