In an effort to understand the kinetics and mechanisms of gas-phase metal oxidation reactions, experiments were continued in an apparatus which uses RF heating and laser radiation for the production of the metal vapor and time- of-flight mass spectrometry for product identification and quantitative measurements of reactants and products. Measurements were continued on the oxidation of thorium and uranium by molecular and atomic oxygen, as well as N2O and rate constants were measured.
