Abstract

Hydroxide and amide ion-induced elimination reactions of diethyl ether and diethyl ether-d10 were investigated with a variable temperature flowing afterglow apparatus. Temperature effects on reaction rates, kinetic isotope effects, and product distributions are reported. The pressure dependence of these transformations also were explored and mechanistic arguments are presented. This data confirms predictions based on statistical rate theory and ab initio calculations and provides valuable information on the potential energy surfaces for base-induced eliminations.
