Kinetics of OH formation for the reaction of C2H5CO radicals with O2 have been studied using the low-pressure discharge flow technique coupled with resonance fluorescence monitoring of OH radicals at room temperature in He buffer gas. The OH yields are close to unity at the lowest pressures studied, but decrease rapidly with increasing pressure. The experimental OH yields are reproduced well using multichannel variational RRKM theory.
