Abstract : The pyrolysis of C2F4, C3F6, and CF2O were studied in the temperature and pressure ranges 300-455C, 25-760 torr; 550-675C, 50-410 torr; and 330-480C, 25-600 torr, respectively. The rate equations and appropriate Arrhenius rate constants for these three reactions are reported. The oxidation kinetics of C2F4 are also being investigated and preliminary results in the temperature and pressure ranges 175-300C and 25-200 torr are discussed. Finally the application of gas-solid chromatography techniques to the separation of low molecular weight fluorocarbons and the analysis of the C2F4 oxidation products are discussed. (Author)
