**Oxidation of Aromatics**

(Carstensen and Dean, IJCK 2012) (Lin and Lin, JPC 1986) (Zhou, Kislov, Mebel, JPC A 2012) Oxyradicals are likely key intermediates Generally we look at the oxidation of benzene. It forms an oxyradical which decomposes to form a 5-member ring and CO. How does that translate to a larger PAH? We have been examining the decomposition.

**Substrate Size 1 atm -Affect is larger then expected**

-More work needs to be done in understand the assumption from molecular to edge reaction.

**Zigzag vs Armchair 1 atm ZZ I ZZ II AC II AC I ZZ I ZZ II AC II AC I**

Armchair I ZZ I ZZ II AC II AC I 1 atm Armchair II ZZ I ZZ II AC II AC I Zigzag I -emphasize two things. Zigzag and armchair are the same. All at same time and same order of magnitude Zigzag II

**> >> Conclusions Proliferation of zigzag-edges in flames**

The decomposition of oxyradicals: temperature, pressure, substrate-size, site dependent armchair rates are close to those of a zigzag-edge correlated with aromaticity The following generalization can be made: 2 free edges free edge 1 free edge free edge no free edges > >> Proliferation of zigzag-edges in flames
