Radiation induced effects in n BA-AMPS copolymer has been investigated by Electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. An attempt has been made in this regard, to study the effect of gamma ray irradiation on AMPS copolymer.  The ESR spectra of n BA- AMPS copolymer suggest the formation of free radicals and trapped charge carriers, reasons for these changes are explained based on chemical changes induced by gamma irradiation.

Key words: Electron spin resonance(ESR), gamma irradiation, nBA-AMPS copolymer (ButylAcrylite acrylamido methyl propane sulfonic acid).
