Title:   The phenyl plus phenyl reaction as pathway to benzynes: An experimental and theoretical study
Journal:   Chem. Phys. Lett.
Volume:   513
Page(s):   20 - 26
Year:   2011
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2011DUR/OLZ20-26

Reaction:   Phenyl + PhenylBenzene + Benzyne
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   1230 - 1530 K
Pressure:  1.00 bar
Rate expression:   no rate data available
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Mechanistic information only
Pressure dependence:   None reported
Experimental procedure:   Shock tube
Excitation technique:   Thermal
Time resolution:   In real time
Analytical technique:   Mass spectrometry
Comments:   The occurrence of significant amounts of benzene as well as the presence of biphenylene besides biphenyl was detected. These results indicate that the dominating fate of the phenyl radicals is not only recombination but also disproportionation.
