Laser flash photolysis coupled with resonance fluorescence detection of Br atoms was used to investigate the temperature dependence of the reaction Br + neo-C5H12 (1) between 688 and 775 K. The standard enthalpy of formation for the neo-C5H11 radical was estimated to be 34.7 and 41.6 kJ mol-1, depending on the value of the activation energy assumed for the reverse reaction neo-C5H11+HBr(-1).
