The radiation-induced conductivity in liquid neopentane was studied at electric field strengths up to 140 kV/cm. The shape of the ionization current vs. field strength curve is quite different from that of n-hexane. Extrapolation to infinite field strength gives a total ionization yield of G = 4.03 (W = 24.8) which agrees with the gas-phase value.
