            In order to study radiation effects in ammonium salt of polystyrenesulfonate, it is appropriate to know about radiation effects in other salts of polystyrene sulfonate. An attempt has been made in this regard by using Scanning electron microscope(SEM) spectroscopy. On irradiation a change in the molecular structure is observed in SEM images reasons for these changes are explained based on chemical changes induced by gamma irradiation.

Key words: Polystyrenesulfonate, Scanning electron microscope(SEM), gamma irradiation.
