Abstract:

Experimental data are presented that show that chlorine atom abstraction from HCl by a colliding D or H atom is relatively slow at room temperature. These slow rates are much smaller than those obtained by trajectory calculations, suggesting that the activation energy for this process is 3 kcalmol. Author
