OH radicals were generated by the thermal decomposition of HONO2 tert-butyl hydroperoxide and detected with pulsed laser induced fluorescence. Rate constants were derived by following the OH decays in the presence of the substrate.

The reaction mechanism was theoretically investigated with transition-state theory (TST) calculations based on quantum chemically predicted energetics.
