Abstract:

Isotopes of carbon are separated by irradiating an isotopic mixture of methyl fluoride with a laser tuned to an absorption and of one of the isotopes, reacting the isotopic mixture with atomic bromine, whereby the excited isotopic form of methyl fluoride reacts at a faster rate than the other form, and separating the products.
