Utilizing the technique of flash photolysis-resonance fluorescence the rate constants for the reactions of hydroxyl radicals OH with methane and carbon monoxide have been measured up to 825 K. Curvatures have been observed in the Arrhenius plots for both reactions. The measured rate constants have been compared with the previous measurements reported in the literature. Oxidation of BF3 and BCl3 by both O2 and O3 have been studied. The rate of oxidation of these haloboranes by O2 is negligibly small. O3 oxidizes BCl3 but not BF3 at a measurable rate.
