Comments:   Temperature produced by shock heating; O-atoms generated by 248 or 193-nm photolysis of SO2.
Combining present results with those of 1981KEI/TAN2693 obtained at 298-998 K gives:

k = (2.74±0.07) x 10-18T2.25±0.13exp[-(1500±90)/T] cm3s-1

Computational studies also carried out indicating that the channels forming OH + CH2OH dominate at 300 K, while those forming OH + CH3O dominate above 1700 K.
