Abstract : The study of the disproportionation of alkyl radicals has been extended to large branched pentyl-2 radicals. Contrary to the belief based on small radical behavior, steric and activation energy effects are shown to be important. Existing data in the literature are summarized from the point of view of entropy effects. (Author)
