Title:   The kinetics of the reactions of C2(aΠ4) with alcohols
Journal:   J. Phys. Chem. A
Volume:   109
Page(s):   3921 - 3925
Year:   2005
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2005HUA/ZHU3921-3925

Reaction:   C2(a3PIu) + n-C4H9OH → Products
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   298 K
Pressure:  8.67E-3 bar
Rate expression:   4.89x10-11 [±2.2x10-12 cm3/molecule s]
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:   Laser induced fluorescence
Comments:   Rate constants were derived by following the decays of the C2 LIF signals. The primary reaction is believed to be abstraction of the carbon bound hydrogens. Ab initio calculations were carried out at the MP2(full)/6-311++G(d,p) level of theory, molecular properties reported, and the mechanism discussed.

Listed uncertainties are 1 sigma.
