The evaluation of a gas mixture having an atomic composition similar to that of A-150 tissue-equivalent (TE) plastic has been extended to a high-energy neutron therapy beam. "A-150" gas, air, and methane-based TE gas were each flowed through A-150 plastic-walled ion chambers of different sizes and irradiated with p(66)Be(49) neutrons. A tentative value for W(A-150) of 27.3 +/- 0.5 JC-1 was derived for this beam. The W value of the A-150 gas mixture is compared to those of methane-based TE gas and of air for the p(66)Be(49) neutron beam as well as to corresponding values found in similar experiments using 14.8-MeV monoenergetic neutrons.
