Abstract:

All available date on the rate constants for the reactions which occur in high temperature air were evaluated. Using each experimentally determined rate constant expression, over the temperature range covered in the study, a new expression which best fits all the data was developed. This was done for the following reactions O2 M reversibly yields O O M, O N2 reversibly yields N NO, O NO reversibly yields N O2, N O reversibly yields NO e, N2 M reversibly yields N N M, NO M reversibly yields N O M where the effect of various inert bodies Ms is considered. The rate expressions found and the method by which they were determined are shown. Disagreements and inaccuracies are indicated. In addition, values of rate constants for a number of other reactions of less importance to these problems are indicated. Author
