Mechanistic insights into ozone-initiated oxidative degradation of saturated hydrocarbons and polymers
Accurate quantum chemical calculations were employed to investigate the mechanism of ozone-initiated oxidation of C-H bonds of saturated hydrocarbons and polymers. Step wise hydrogen atom abstraction generates the first resting state the trihydroxide -COOOH, which undergoes decomposition to produce the free radical species alkoxyl -CO˙ and peroxyl ˙OOH thereby setting off a complex chain of radical processes. The H transfer from peroxyl radical to alkoxyl allows formation of inactive alcohol...[Show more]
