Preferential cleavage of the Si=Si double bond to the central Si-Si single bond is a straightforward indication of the smaller bond dissociation energy of the double bond than that of the single bond in 52 as predicted by the CGMT model (Section 1.4).
Lubo Jurasek of McGill University considered the reactivity of lignin models with oxygen-centred radicals, computing the proton and electron affinity and O-H bond dissociation energy. Sylvain Robert of the Universite du Quebec a Trois-Rivieres, reported the inhibition of light-induced colour reversion of softwood TMP by fluorescence whitening agents from a molecular simulation.
These free-radical energies are based on hydrogen bond dissociation energy data.
