Abstract

In aqueous medium, at 105-115 °C, SO4-. (generated from S2O82-) was found to abstract a hydrogen atom from methane and ethane to form the corresponding alkyl radicals which could be trapped efficiently by carbon monoxide, the resultant acyl radicals being ultimately converted into the homologous carboxylic acids.
