Diffusion and reactivity of the OH radicals produced by 500-keV protons in liquid water, where a shock wave is not expected to occur due to the very low LET. a Mean square displacement of OH radicals, b number of OH and H\(_2\)O\(_2\) molecules, as a function of time. MBN Explorer results (histograms with error bars) are compared to GEANT4-DNA simulations (dashed and dotted lines) (Karamitros et al. 2014). See the text for details
