Alkoxy radicals are a key component in both the atmospheric and combustion oxidation pathways of traditional and alternative fuels. An accurate description of their chemistry as it alters with reaction conditions is essential to understanding atmospheric and combustion processes involving hydrocarbons. Experimental and theoretical data on alkoxy radicals and their reactions are scarce, especially for larger chain systems and high temperatures. The present work investigates all unimolecular… CONTINUE READING
