Irradiation of benzene with 14
Solid benzene at -196 °C was irradiated with 14CH+ and 14CH3+ ions at 10-eV kinetic energy. Yields were determined for the labeled hydrocarbon products: benzene, toluene, cycloheptatriene, diphenylmethane, biphenyl, and phenylcycloheptatriene. The radioactivity distributions between the ring and the methyl group of the toluene product were also determined. These results have been compared to those previously obtained with 14C+ and 14CH2+ ions. The comparisons have provided both insight into the reaction mechanisms and a tentative estimate of the distribution of the species (14CHx) that react with the benzene. © 1978 American Chemical Society.
