We present a large-scale Monte Carlo calculation of the deconfining phase transition temperature in lattice quantum chromodynamics without fermions. Using the Wilson action, the transition temperature as a function of the lattice coupling g is consistent with scaling behavior dictated by the perturbative α function for 6/g2>6.15.
