Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe pyrolysis of cyclohexane at low pressure (40 mbar) was studied in a plug flow reactor from 950 to 1520 K by synchrotron VUV photoionization mass spectrometry. More than 30 species were identified by measurement of photoionization efficiency (PIE) spectra, including some radicals like methyl, propargyl, allyl and cyclopentadienyl radicals, and stable products (e.g., 1-hexene, benzene and some aromatics). Among all the products, 1-hexene is formed at the lowest temperature, indicating that th…
