Kinetics of the gas‐phase reactions of chlorine atoms with CH²F², CH³CCl³, and CF³CFH² over the temperature range 253–553 K

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Relative rate techniques were used to study the title reactions in 930–1200 mbar of N2 diluent. The reaction rate coefficients measured in the present work are summarized by the expressions k(Cl + CH2F2) = 1.19 × 10−17 T2 exp(−1023/T) cm3 molecule−1 s−1 (253–553 K), k(Cl + CH3CCl3) = 2.41 × 10−12 exp(−1630/T) cm3 molecule−1 s−1 (253–313 K), and k(Cl + CF3CFH2) = 1.27 × 10−12 exp(−2019/T) cm3 molecule−1 s−1 (253–313 K). Results are discussed with respect to the literature data.
