Title:   Energy transfer effects during the multichannel decomposition of ethanol
Journal:   Inter. J. Chem. Kinet.
Volume:   36
Page(s):   456 - 465
Year:   2004
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2004TSA456-465

Reaction:   C2H5OHC2H4 + H2O
Reaction order:   1
Temperature:   800 - 1800 K
Rate expression:   1.14x1013 [s-1] (T/298 K)1.36 e-275159 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   RRK(M) extrapolation
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is high pressure limit
Comments:   Results are based on a review and analysis of the literature data. The article discusses the multi-channel nature of ethanol decomposition and difficulties associated with expressing the rate constants in a convenient analytical form over extended temperature and pressure ranges.

Some analytical formats for intermediate pressures are also given in the paper but are too complex to reproduce here.
