dc.description.abstract The regioselectivity of the reaction of hydroxyl radical addition to toluene and naphthalene are examined in this study over the temperature range of 25°C-45°C. Also, the relative rates of reactivity as compared to benzene are determined for toluene, naphthalene, mesitylene, and p-xylene over the same temperature range. 2-(t-Butylazo)prop-2-yl hydroperoxide was used as the hydroxyl radical source and 1,1,3,3-tetramethylisoindolin-2-yloxyl was used as radical trap. For toluene the relative rates of addition were found to be 4 times greater for the ortho position versus the meta postion and 2 times greater for the para position versus the meta position, when the number of meta and para sites are taken into account.
