Abstract

Previously published data on the rates of reaction of methyl radicals with formaldehyde and isobutane have been re-analysed by kinetic modelling. It is shown that the rate constant for the initial abstraction reaction was significantly overestimated in each case, owing to the neglect of important secondary radical-radical reactions. The revised rate constants are reported and compared with the results of other investigators.
