Comments:   OH radicals were produced from the F + H2O -> OH + HF reaction with F atoms generated in a discharge flow system. The reaction rate was determined relative to those for the reference compounds isoprene and propionaldehyde. The rate constants at 298 K for the reactions of hydroxyl radical with propionaldehyde and isoprene were taken from the literature as 1.98x10-11 and 9.99 x 10-11 cm3 molecule-1 s-1, respectively.

The authors derived the rate expression after averaging the data from the reference compounds isoprene and propionaldehyde. Listed uncertainties are 2 sigma and take into account the scatter of data and uncertainty of the experimental parameters such as pressure, temperature, and flow rates..

Ab initio molecular orbital calculations were carried out at the MP2/6-311++G-(d,p) level of theory and structures and vibrational frequencies of the reactants, products, and transition state complexes are reported. The results suggest that both addition of OH to 1,3-butadiene and the abstraction of hydrogen atom from 1,3-butadiene by the OH radical are exothermic processes. Addition of OH to the terminal carbon of the 1,3-butadiene is predicted to be the most energetically favored reaction pathway and is calculated to have an activation energy of 0.7 kcal mol-1.
