V band electron spin resonance-ENDOR spectroscopy has been applied to the study of "trapped" electrons in single crystals of polyhydroxy and carbohydrate compounds X-irradiated at low temperature. Evidence is presented from ENDOR measurements of hydroxy proton couplings that electrons are stabilized at intermolecular sites. The electron can be stabilized in the dipole fields of two or three hydroxy groups.
