Scholarcy highlights

  • The reaction of hydroxyl radicals and superoxide anions with methional were investigated by pulse-radiolytic methods
  • The second-order rate constant for the attack of OH was determined at 8.2×109 M−1 sec−1
  • The transient species were identified by comparison with published results of pulse radiolysis and EPR spectroscopy of model compounds
  • The mechanism for the oxidation of methional by OH was found to be more complex than a simple fragmentation reaction
  • A preliminary report was presented at the 10th FEBS-meeting in Paris, July 1975
