Abstract

original image

The flip side: Both the charged and uncharged products formed by C[BOND]H bond electrophilic activation have been experimentally detected in the gas phase. The HO2. radical is formed by a process involving the prototypical oxygen-centered radical cation O2.+ and the methane derivative CH2F2.
