The kinetics of the decomposition of N2F4 was investigated in a shock tube coupled to a t-o-f mass spectrometer in the temperature range 1200 to 3000 K. The decomposition is described by the elementary reactions 1 N2F4 yielding 2NF2 2 NF2 yielding NF F 3 2NF yielding N2 2F 4 NF NF2 yielding N2F F2 5 N2F NF2 yielding N2 NF3 6 F2 NF2 yielding NF3 F 7 NF3 yielding NF2 F 8 2NF2 yielding NF3 NF. The kinetic and direct evidence give strong support for the existence of the N2F radical and its significance in the decomposition of N2F4. Author
