Abstract : Examination is made of chemical kinetic schemes proposed for the thermal and photoinitiated decomposition rates of ozone. A kinetic scheme capable of representing both the observed ultraviolet quantum yields in pure ozone and the thermal decomposition rates in O3-O2 mixtures is selected. The scheme is intended for calculation of temperature-composition histories during photoinitiated ozone explosions. Such calculations are now in progress. Preliminary results indicate a close correspondence between the calculated results and the observed explosive behavior of O3 under photolysis. Application is also planned for calculation of photochemical steady-states in ozone, and their relation to explosion limits. (Author)
