Abstract
Irradiations of toluene and o-xylene in the CH3ONO/NO/air system (used to generate OH radicals) have been found to produce significant yields of various C4 and C5 dicarbonyl compounds, aldehydes, and substituted furans. The mechanistic implications, that is, product formation via intramolecular reactions of the initially formed RO and RO2 radicals leading to ring clearage, are discussed in detail.
