8 Oxidation of Aromatics Oxyradicals are likely key intermediates (Lin and Lin, JPC 1986) (Carstensen and Dean, IJCK 2012) (Zhou, Kislov, Mebel, JPC A 2012)

9 Computational Details Quantum chemistry calculations DFT - B3LYP/6-311G(d,p) Reaction kinetics K, atm using MultiWell Comparison to experiments Computational results: You, Zubarev, Lester, Frenklach, JPC A 2011 Lin and Lin (1986) 0.4 – 0.9 atm Frank et al. (1994) 1.3 – 2.5 atm

14 Correlation with Aromaticity Harmonic Oscillator Measure of Aromaticity HOMA = 1 (aromatic form of benzene) HOMA = 0 (Kekulè form of benzene) HOMA = HOMA limiting values

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

30 Oxyradical Decomposition

31 HOMA HOMA oxyradical ring Barrier height (kcal/mol) k T = 2000 K, P = (s -1 ) Kinetics Correlation with HOMA?

32 Conclusions 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
