Abstract

Abstract The rate—energy functions for the decay of toluene molecular cations into tropylium and bezylium cations have been established by analyzing photoelectron—photoion coincidence data with a straightforward formulation of the RRKM theory. The threshold energies for the two corresponding fragmentation reactions could be determined, although both product ions have identical mass. The 0 K enthalpies of formation derived agree closely with appropriately corrected 298 K literature data.
