Abstract:

Reaction of O singlet D2 atoms, formed by photolysis of N2O at 2139 A, with isobutane was studied in the gas phase at room temperature and at total pressure between 80 and 1250 torr. The major features of the reaction are similar to those observed previously in this Laboratory with propane. The excited atoms insert indiscriminately into the primary and tertiary CH bonds of isobutane. The hot butanols formed by insertion are stabilized at pressures much lower than those required for stabilization of hot propanols. The lifetimes of the hot butanols have been determined. The reaction mechanism is discussed. Author
