Abstract : The reaction rate data of the hydroxyl radical in aqueous solution are compiled and evaluated in this critical review. The values are reported in a series of tables covering addition, hydrogen abstraction, inorganic electron transfer and radical reactions. Rate constants for the hydroxyl radical with biological molecules are included. In addition, the rate constant data for the oxide radical ion are given. Physical properties are listed and the experimental methods employed in OH radical chemistry are reviewed. An analysis involving rate constant data comparisons is made.
