The electrons trapped in single crystals of rhamnose X-irradiated at low temperature were studied by ENDOR spectroscopy. Hyperfine couplings of protons in the environs of the electron have been determined from ENDOR measurements, including those of some of the more remote carbon-bound hydrogen atoms. The likely site of electron trapping in the crystal structure of rhamnose was inferred from calculations of the electric potential generated by the dipoles of hydroxy groups about preexisting void spaces. Electron-proton distances for nonexchangeable hydrogen atoms from points within the void were calculated from the crystal structure and compared with distances obtained from hyperfine couplings. Good agreement was obtained between experimental and calculated values.
