Abstract : The report very briefly summarizes the research results which include the apparent discovery of a previously unknown type of termolecular reaction of iodine with bromine, and the characterizing of the kinetic behaviors of a number of other reactions of halogens with other halogens and with hydrogen halides. The molecules are simple even if the reactions are more complicated than was expected, and the information obtained is essential for the development of the sort of comprehensive theory of mechanisms of chemical reactions that must eventually be developed. Such a theory is essential if design of conditions for conducting chemical reactions is ever to get beyond its present very empirical state. (Author)
