The reactions of furan and 2-methylfuran with methylidyne CH (X2Π) radical were investigated at 298 K using synchrotron radiation produced at the Advanced Light Source of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Reaction products were observed by multiplexed photoionization mass spectrometry and characterized based on their photoionization spectra and kinetic time traces. Primary products observed in furan + CH are 2,4-cyclopentadien-1-one (m/z = 80), 2-penten-4-ynal (m/z = 80), and vinylacetylene (m/z = 52). From 2-methylfuran + CH, 2-4-cyclopentadien-1-carbaldehyde (m/z = 94), 2,3,4-hexatrienal (m/z = 94), 1,3 cyclopentadiene (m/z = 66), 3-penten-1-yne (Z) (m/z = 66), and vinylacetylene (m/z = 52) are the primary products observed. Using potential energy surface scans, thermodynamically favorable reaction pathways are proposed. CH addition to the π-bonds in furan and 2-methylfuran rings was found to be the entrance channel that led to formation of all identified primary products. Both reactions follow patterns of H loss and CHO loss, as well as formation of cyclic and acyclic isomers.
