Abstract : Shock tube studies have been made of SF6 dissociation in the presence of H2 at temperatures between 1734 and 1848K and pressures of about 1 atm. During the reaction, SF6 concentration was monitored with measurements of the IR emission at 11.0 microns. The measurements with and without H2 were the same within the experimental error, indicating that H2 is no more effective than argon in dissociating SF6. Spectroscopic measurements of the spectral profile of the 10.6 micron band of SF6 indicated a shift in the maximum intensity from 10.6 microns at room temperature to 11.0 microns at 1780K. (Author)
