Abstract : Oxygen atoms were generated from the mercury--sensitized decomposition of N2O in the presence of C2F4 or C3F6 or hydrocarbon-perfluoroolefin mixtures at 25, 70 and 125 degrees. With C2F4, CF2O is produced with a quantum yield of 1.0 for all conditions. With C3F6, phi (CF3CFO) is about 0.14 for all conditions, but phi (CF2O) drops from 0.86 at 25 degrees to 0.64 at 125 degrees. The competitive studies with hydrocarbons gave rate parameters, which are tabulated. The hydrocarbons studies are C2H2, C2H4, C3H6, 1-C4H8, C2H6, c-C3H6, and C3H8. Results agree reasonably well with some of the previous work.
