Theoretical description of the 2A/double prime/ and 2A/prime/ states of the peroxyformyl radicalSimple orbital ideas are used to describe the lowest two states of the peroxyformyl radical, and ab initio Hartree-Fock calculations in these states are reported. It is found that both states may be formed exothermically by association of O2 and HCO in their ground states; however, the excited state may decompose readily to OH and CO2. The possible role of such processes in oxidation of aldelydes is discussed.
