Abstract:

Two-body emission from chlorine atoms has been used to follow the thermal decomposition of ClF occurring behind incident shock waves in the temperature range of 1700-2200K. The initial reaction rates were interpreted in terms of the bimolecular rate constant for the reaction ClF M Cl F M. If the competing exchange reaction Cl ClF Cl2 F is very fast, then the rate expression changes. The latter value for kd is in better agreement with all of the available data. Author
