Pyrolysis kinetics and mechanisms for polycyclic perhydroarenes bearing long N-alkyl chains

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A set of long-chain polycyclic n-alkylperhydroarenes was pyrolyzed neat at temperatures between 400 and 475°C. The disappearance of these compounds typically followed first-order kinetics. The pyrolysis of a perhydroarene with an n-carbon containing n-alkyl chain generated numerous primary products. The primary products with the highest initial selectivities were generally the perhydroarene plus an α-olefin with n carbon atoms, the methylene perhydroarene plus an n-alkane with n-1 carbon atoms, and a polycyclic mono-olefin plus an n-alkane with n carbon atoms. The kinetics data from this investigation were used to test a structure-reactivity correlation in the literature for the pyrolysis of saturated cyclic compounds and to update it so that it becomes consistent with the kinetics of long-chain n-alkylperhydroarenes.
