1. The thermal conversion of oxacyclobutane was investigated, using a microreactor mounted in a chromatograph. 2. In the thermal decomposition of oxacyclobutane, two primary reactions take place: decomposition of oxacyclobutane, two primary reactions take place: decomposition to ethylene and formaldehyde (90%) and isomerization to propionaldehyde (10%); the latter reaction is evidently the result of the influence at the walls of the reactor. The secondary processes include decarbonylation and dehydrogenation of the primary products.
