Examination of the reactions of the long-lived (>0.5-s) radical cations of CD3CH2COOCH3 and CH3CH2COOCD3 indicates that the long-lived, nondecomposing methyl propionate radical cation CH3CH2C(O)OCH 3 (+·) isomerizes to its enol form CH3CH=C(OH)OCH 3 (+·) (ΔH isomerization ≃ -32 kcal/mol) via two different pathways in the gas phase in a Fourier-transform ion… CONTINUE READING
