Comments:   The reactions of the phenyl radical with 1,3-butadiene and D6-1,3-butadiene as well as of the D5-phenyl radical with 2,3-D2-1,3-butadiene and 1,1,4,4-D4-1,3-butadiene were studied under crossed molecular beams conditions at collision energies of about 55 kJ/mol. Experimentally and theoretically, the bicyclic and aromatic 1,4-dihydronaphthalene molecule was identified as a major product of this reaction with the 1-phenyl−1,3-butadiene being a less prominent contributor. Other H + C10H10 product pathways are minor.
