The chemistry and kinetics of reactions involving various oxides of chlorine were studied using the data obtained in the present investigation in conjunction with data reported in the literature. Additional experiments on the interaction of Cl2O3 with ClO2 were performed in order to obtain more complete information on the effect of kinetic variables. The decomposition of ClO2 is represented by the following reaction mechanism 2ClO2 on wall to ClO ClO3 ClO2 Clo to Cl2O3 Cl2O3 ClO to ClO2 2Cl O2 Cl ClO2 to 2ClO Cl ClO2 to Cl2 O2 Cl on wall to 12 Cl2. It is shown that the observed characteristics of the explosive decomposition of ClO2 are fully consistent with the reaction-kinetic equations developed on the basis of this scheme. Author
