Abstract

A large number of relative reactivities for alkoxyl radicals was reported in the sixties and early seventies.1–3 However, absolute rates proved very difficult to obtain. This resulted largely from the fact that alkoxyl radicals are invisible to ESR techniques, which at the time were one of the main sources of kinetic data for free radicals. Further, at ambient temperatures alkoxyl radicals are normally too short-lived for conventional ESR methods.
