Abstract : Shock tube experiments to measure the Fe + O2 gas phase reaction rate and the FeO fundamental band intensity, by using iron penetacarbonyl as a source of iron atoms, are described. A lower bound for the reaction Fe + O2 kl to FEO + O of K(1) = 3 X 10 to the 12th cu cm/(mole sec) for T > or + 2400K and an integrated fundamental FeO band intensity of 450/ama sq cm are reported. In addition the rate of vibrational relaxation of CO by Fe-atoms for T = 1400-1900K is given. Calculations for similar experiments on Al + O2 by the use of trimethylaluminum as a source of aluminum atoms are presented. (Author)
