Abstract : The intramolecular isomerization by H-atom transfer, of ten vibrationally excited alkyl radicals was investigated. A chemical activation technique was used to produce the excited alkyl radicals in energy states near 45 kcal/mole. Reactions which proceed via a 6-membered ring transition state are most labile; a table of relative isomerization tendency as a function of ring size and H-type is given. (Author)
