Title:   1,3-Cycloaddition of Ozone to Ethylene, Benzene, and Phenol: A Comparative ab Initio Study
Journal:   J. Phys. Chem. A
Volume:   107
Page(s):   7574 - 7580
Year:   2003
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2003HEN/VIN7574-7580

Reaction:   Phenol + O31,2-Dihydroxybenzene + O2
Reaction order:   2
Rate expression:   no rate data available
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Ab initio
Comments:   No rate constants reported. Barriers and heats of reactions only. Quantum calculations of addition of ozone to ethylene, benzene and phenol. For phenol, there are three possible addition channels: 1,2-, 2,3-, and 3,4-. For the 1,2-addition channel (the favored channel), it is believed that the molecule eventually decomposes to catechol (1,2-Dihydroxybenzene). Fair to good agreement between ab initio calculations and experimental values for Ethylene and Benzene reactions are obtained. No experimental data exists for the Phenol reactions.
