Decomposition of tert-butyl bromide analyzed by gas chromatography
When a pure sample of tert-butyl bromide is analyzed by gas chromatography, two components are usually observed. One of them is tert-butyl bromide, the other one is adecomposition product. If the temperature of the GC is increased, the amount of decomposition increases and the the amount of tert-butyl bromide decreases. Why doesthe amount of the decomposition increase with increasing temperature?
