Reactions of Electrons with Hydrocarbon Cations: From Linear Alkanes to Aromatic Species
In the framework of our systematic study of the recombination of hydrocarbon ions, we have already obtained results for classical aliphatic carbocations,1 small unsaturated rings2 and methyl substituted benzenic rings.3 The recombination rate constants of these ions range from 5 to 12 × 10−7 cm3s−1 and are independent of the number of carbon atoms or structure.
