Abstract:

At low pressures and elevated temperatures cyclopentyl radicals are found to dissociate mainly by two modes of reaction about 34 by loss of H atom to form cyclopentene, and about 66 by a C-C bond rupture to form ethylene and allyl radicals. Under the conditions employed no evidence for a third possible mode, the loss of H2 to form cyclopentenyl radical, could be found. It is estimated that an incidence of 2 of the latter could have been detected. Author
