Abstract:

The chemiluminescent emission arising from the reactions of atomic oxygen with acetylene, ethylene, methane and carbon monoxide was investigated in the pressure range 1 - 1000 microns Hg. In a separate study, the reactions of oxygen atoms with acetylene, ethylene and carbonyl sulfide, were investigated mass spectrometrically. The reaction of atomic oxygen with acetylene was emphasized in both studies. The report contains among various results, data on the pathway of the initiation reaction the associated rate constant the variation of atomic oxygen concentration, acetylene concentration and carbon monoxide concentration with time the intensity dependence of the various chemiluminescent emissions on time and on molecular oxygen concentration.
