Kinetics of the reaction of Cl atoms with CHCl3 over the temperature range 253-313 K

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The reaction CHCl3 + Cl → CCl3 + HCl was studied in the atmospherically relevant temperature range from 253 to 313 K and in 930 mbar of N2 diluent using the relative rate method. A temperature dependent reaction rate constant, valid in the temperature range 220-330 K, was determined by a fit to the result of the present study and that of Orlando (1999); k = (3.77 ± 0.32) × 10-12 exp((-1011 ± 24)/T) cm3 molecule-1 s-1.
