Simple Homolysis

A simple homolysis is a homolysis caused by the energy applied directly.  A simple homolysis is not accompanied by formation of any bonds and, therefore, is always endothermic.



eg. 1:



eg. 2:



eg. 3:



Standard enthalpy of a simple homolysis is equal to the bond dissociation energy of the bond broken.
