Structure-dependent reactivity of Criegee intermediates studied with spectroscopic methods

Criegee intermediates can be prepared by two methods and may play important roles in atmospheric chemistry. Anti-type Criegee intermediates react quickly with water dimer; Syn-type Criegee intermediates may undergo thermal decomposition via intramolecular hydrogen atom tunneling. In addition, the pros and cons of each spectroscopic method in probing Criegee intermediates in kinetic experiments will also be discussed.

About this collection

Chemical reaction dynamics has been an essential research field in chemistry as it can provide the most fundamental understanding of chemical reaction processes as well as important support for many important research areas such as combustion chemistry, interstellar chemistry, and atmospheric chemistry. Developments in this field have greatly enhanced our understanding of the nature of important chemical reactions, as well as intermolecular and intra-molecular energy transfer processes involving key reactive species and radicals. Significant progress has been made during the last decade or so, owing to the developments of many new and state-of-the-art experimental techniques and theoretical methods during that period. In view of these new developments, this Chemical Society Reviews themed issue, guest edited by Xueming Yang (Chinese Academy of Sciences), David Clary (University of Oxford) and Daniel Neumark (University of California, Berkeley) aims to provide both graduate students and experts a close, critical look at these recent advances in both experimental and theoretical research in chemical reaction dynamics.
