Abstract

Studies of bond dissociation energies of organic polyatomic molecules led me to conclude that the weakest bond in toluene is the PhCH2-H. Indeed, pyrolysis of toluene carried out in a flow system at pressures of 5–10 torrs resulted in its dissociation into a thermally stable benzyl radical and a hydrogen atom1. Thus, dibenzyl and H2 were the main products of the decomposition.
