DRAFT DEFINITION
Homolysis

Fragmentation of an odd electron ion that results from one of a pair of electrons that form a bond between two atoms moving to form a pair with the odd electron on the atom at the apparent charge site. Fragmentation results in the formation of an even electron ion and a radical. This reaction involves the movement of a single electron and is symbolized by a single-barbed arrow. Synonymous with Homolysis.

Considered between 2004 and 2006 but not included in the 2006 PAC submission
