We discuss the recent report of a roaming type mechanism for the decomposition of the Criegee intermediate. We show that the predicted barrier height for this new pathway is too low by ∼30 kcal/mol owing to an inconsistent use of spin-restricted and spin-unrestricted calculations. As a result, this new pathway is not expected to compete significantly with the well-known dioxirane pathways for the decomposition of the Criegee intermediate.
