Abstract : Propagation and termination rate constants have been measured for autoxidation of benzyl phenyl ether, benzyl t-butyl ether, isopropyl ether, and benzyl ether. In the case of isopropyl ether and benzyl ether, estimates have been made of inter- and intramolecular propagation rate constants. Reactivities of acyclic ethers towards the t-butylperoxy radical have been determined. Rate constants for autoxidation of cyclic and acylic ethers have been summarized and compared. (Author)
