Comments:   The possible OH addition/CH3 elimination channel was found to be < 5% of reaction, with no significant formation of acetic acid detected.

In addition to the experimental work, the potential energy surface was characterized at the B3LYP-DFT/6-31G(d,p) and B3LYP-DFT/6-311++G(d,p) levels of theory, with single-point CCSD(T)/6-311++G(2d,2p) energy calculations. At all levels, the barrier for OH-addition was found to be 6±0.5 kcal/mol, at least 2.5 kcal/mol higher than that for the H-abstraction channels. Transition state theory and RRKM - master equation calculations suggest the OH-addition channel is negligible at all relevant atmospheric temperatures.
