Experimental data on the atomic cracking of propyl radicals and on the deuterization of methyl radicals are compared with some theoretical calculations. With the aid of some assumptions concerning intramolecular energy transfer in the dissociating molecules involved in these and other reactions and concerning the corresponding activated complexes, data on a number of free radical reactions are correlated.
