Reaction:   C6H5CH2OOH → ·OH + C6H5CH2O
Reaction order:   1
Temperature:   300 - 2000 K
Rate expression:   2.74x1011 [s-1] (T/298 K)0.98 e-225559 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Transition state theory
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is high pressure limit
Comments:   Reaction potential energy surface was studied using quantum chemistry and rate constants were calculated using transition state theory. This equation is for a stepwise mechanism. A separate equation is given for the concerted mechanism.
