(Graph Presented) Radical species: Controversy surrounds the peroxone reaction mechanism; does the rate-determining step involve an electron-transfer or a hydride-transfer reaction? The authors re-investigate the peroxone reaction in D2O to resolve the issue (see figure). © 2007 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
