Page(s):   6092 - 6101
Year:   2001
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2001BOH6092-6101

Reaction:   Toluene + ·OH → OH-toluene adduct
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   298 K
Pressure:  1.01 bar
Rate expression:   5.7x10-12 [±1.9x10-13 cm3/molecule s]
Bath gas:   N2
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Absolute value measured directly
Pressure dependence:   None reported
Experimental procedure:   Static or low flow - Data taken vs time
Excitation technique:   Flash photolysis (laser or conventional)
Time resolution:   In real time
Analytical technique:   Vis-UV absorption
Comments:   OH radicals are produced by 248 nm photolysis of H2O2.The OH and OH-Toluene (-h8 and -d8) adducts have been detected through their absorptions at 308 nm. Absorption-cross sections of (1.1+/-0.2)E-17 cm^2 have been determined for both OH-toluene and OH-toluene-d8 at 308 nm.
