Radiation induced modified polystyrene(PS) has been investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimetry. DSC thermogram of unmodified PS has shown first order transition around 800C on irradiation a change in the peak shifted to low temperature indicate the decrease of PS on  gamma irradiation.

Key words: PS(polystyrene), gamma irradiation, DSC( Differential scanning calorimetry)
