Abstract : A procedure has been developed for predicting activation energies and high-temperature rate constants for the reactions of combustion products formed from propellants that use oxidizers containing compounds of chlorine or fluorine. The procedure has been applied also to computing the high temperature kinetics of bimolecular gas-phase reactions in which the following atoms are transferred: O, N, B, Br, I, Be, and C. The computation procedure was based on modifications to the Johnston-Patt Technique of predicting the rate constants of hydrogen-atom transfer reactions. Potential energies of repulsion were calculated by using a reduced-variable treatment of the Sato interatomic repulsion function. The computed rate constants have been compared with experimental kinetic data where available, and the agreement is generally satisfactory. (Author)
