Abstract : Shock tube studies of SF4 dissociation were made in the temperature range from 1650 to 1950K. Rate constants for the initial fragmentation of SF4 have been determined from IR measurements and are explainable in terms of classical unimolecular reaction kinetics. The data were correlated with the Rice-Ramsperger-Kassel (RRK) theory. Kinetic rates obtained from exponentially decaying radiation at 12.6 microns and temperatures of 2050 to 2800K are attributed to SF3 and lie near the low-pressure limit of unimolecular reactions. The SF3 dissociation rates are given. (Author)
