Studies By The Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) Technique. XII. Interactions Of Thermal-energy Electrons With The Molecules CHF3, CHClF2, And CHCl2F
Published 1978 · Chemistry
Using the ECR technique the electron scavenging properties of the halomethanes CHF3, CHClF2, and CHCl2F were investigated. A brief discussion is given on the evaluation of experimental data for inefficient polar scavengers. Absolute attachment rate constants were obtained from the decrease of the cyclotron resonance signal upon addition of the above scavengers. For the molecules CHF3 and CHCl2F the activation energies for the capture processes are given. Possible capture mechanisms are discussed.
