Abstract:

In such non-equilibrium combustion systems as rock exhaust plumes, reactions of the types X HY XY H and X Y M XY M, where X is a metal atom or free electron, Y is a free radical and M is a collision partner, compete to determine concentration ratios XYX. Competition criteria suggested by Sugden are modified, extended, and exemplified by reference to particular reactions of practical interest. The criteria help the chemist to select the minimum number of chemical reactions for computer calculations on the properties of combustion systems. Recommended rate coefficients and uncertainties are offered for several reactions of types A and B. Author
