A method for the determination of the relative rate constants for reactions of the OH radical is described. The OH radical is generated from the reaction between N2O and the photochemically-produced electron in a solution of 10−3 M hexacyanoferrate(II) irradiated at 2537 Å. The method has been applied to the determination of the rate constants for the reactions of OH with methanol, ethanol, 2-propanol, formate, bromide, glycine, and boric acid relative to that with [Fe(CN)6]4−. The values found are compared with those obtained by other methods, and their significance is discussed.
