A Kinetic study of the very low pressure thermolysis of phenylacetic acid above 900 K reveals that its decomposition occurs in a concerted manner, yielding toluene and carbon dioxide, probably via a four-centre transition state [reaction (1)] [graphic omitted] with log[k_∞(1)/s^(–1)]=[(13 ± 0.3)–(12 200 ± 500)]/T.
