An autocatalytic cycle in autoxidation of triethylborane

Author affiliations

Abstract

An autocatalytic cycle was found in the mechanism of autoxidation of triethylborane using density functional theory calculations. The reaction starts with the generation of an ethyl radical via slow homolytic substitution. Fast radical propagation then takes place through a catalytic cycle in which the ethyl radical acts as a catalyst.
