Abstract:

The research program consisted of the study of the reactions of fluorine and fluorine-like species with hydrogen and other fuel-type molecules. The main effort was directed at the study of the gaseous hydrogen-fluorine system. The thermally-initiated reaction, including the effects of species that inhibit and promote the reaction were investigated. The area of interest also includes the study of fluorine with other species, such as hydrocarbons and the study of the reactions of fluorine-like compounds such as oxygen difluoride and tetrafluorohydrazine. The general approach is to study the kinetics of the reactions of these species in order to gain an understanding of the mechanisms of the reactions and of the ways in which species that inhibit or accelerate these reactions exert their effects.
