Abstract : Detailed study was made of the competitive unimolecular decomposition of chemically activated 3,5,5-trimethylhexyl-2 radicals. These decompose by C-C bond ruptures to give neopentyl and methyl radicals. Disproportionation-recombination ratios of the various radicals were measured. The value of D(o) (neo-Pe-H) is determined to be 98.8 kcal/mole. The rate data are examined on a theoretical model. A summary of bond dissociation values determined by the present method is given.
