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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
