Abstract:

Competitive hydrogen transfer studies were conducted for methyl benzoate, diisopropyl methyl phosphonate DIMP, GB, GF and HD vs. carbon tetrachloride in each case employing phenylazotriphenylmethane PAT as a source of phenyl radicals. The cooxidation of GB with benzaldehyde, and of GF with 2, 2-azobis isobutyronitrile AIBN, indene, and with cyclooctene was investigated at 25 C. The kinetics of the autoxidation of GF in the presence of CoII catalyst at 75 to 135 deg C were investigated. In addition, the autoxidation reaction was investigated in the absence of catalyst and in the presence of varying quantities of catalyst. The effect of 2,6-di-tert-butylphenol DTBP as an inhibitor was investigated. The autoxidation of HD in the absence and in the presence of CoII catalyst at 105 deg C was examined. The use of ferrous phthalocyanine as a heterogeneous catalyst for the autoxidation of GF at 25 deg C was examined. The results obtained are compared with those reported for the autoxidation of carboxylic esters.
