The thermal dissociation of formaldehyde proceeds on three channels, the molecular-elimination channel H2CO --> H2 + CO (1), the radical-forming bond-fission channel H2CO --> H + HCO (2), and the bond-fission-initiated, intramolecular-hydrogen-abstraction channel H2CO --> H...HCO --> H2 + CO (3) which also forms molecular products. The kinetics of this… (More)
