Nobuaki Tanaka, Shigeo Itoh and Hiromasa Nishikiori Density functional theory studies on the addition and abstraction reactions of OH radicals with terephthalate dianions International Journal of Quantum Chemistry 113
The addition and abstraction reactions of OH radicals with terephthalate dianions are investigated by density functional theory calculations that include solvent effects. For the addition reactions, those targeting the ipso- and ortho-carbons are predicted to be exoergic. The H-atom abstraction reaction is also predicted to be exoergic. On the basis of the rate constants calculated by means of the transition state theory, the H-atom abstraction reaction is determined to be the thermochemically favored path.
