Abstract : The thermal decomposition of NO2Cl in ar and in O2 as well as that of pure NO2Cl was studied from 600 to 1000 K at concentations of 0.001 to 0.01 moles/liter using a shock wave technique. In general, the results re compatible with earlier, low temperature mesurements. The activation energy for pure NO2Cl decomposition is about 2.5 kcals/mole less than that for NO2Cl + Ar or NO2Cl + O2. This is compared to the drop in activation energy calculated from the differences in energy transfer efficiency assuming deactivation on every collision. (Author)
