Radiation chemistry, radiolysis and pulse radiolysis meet actually a growing interest. In the first part of the present paper, some of the aspects of the radiolysis program of CEA will be presented with reference to the electronuclear applications. The new pulse radiolysis facility and the required specifications of the 10 MeV electron linear accelerator in project will be presented in the second part.

La chimie sous rayonnement, la radiolyse et la radiolyse pulsée connaissent actuellement un regain d'intérêt. Dans cet article, quelques aspects fondamentaux du programme de radiolyse au CEA seront d'abord évoqués en faisant référence aux applications à l'électronucléaire. Puis la nouvelle installation de radiolyse pulsée et les spécifications requises pour l'accélérateur linéaire d'électrons de 10 MeV en projet seront présentées.

Key words: radiation chemistry, radiolysis, pulse radiolysis, temperature effects, pressure effects, linear energy transfer
