Abstract : The decomposition of chemically activated propylene formed by addition of methylene to ethylene has been studied. Decomposition into H + allyl is characterized by a looser complex than that found earlier for decomposition of RCH2CH = CH2 into R + allyl. This behavior is compared with that in related systems. Decomposition into CH3 + vinyl also occurs as a minor reaction. The combination rate of allyl radical with H atoms is intermediate between those of alkyl radicals and alkenes. (Author)
