Abstract : Two-body emission from chlorine atoms has been used to follow the thermal decomposition of ClF occurring behind incident shock waves in the temperature range of 1700-2200K. The initial reaction rates were interpreted in terms of the bimolecular rate constant for the reaction ClF + M = Cl + F + M. If the competing exchange reaction Cl +ClF = Cl2 + F is very fast, then the rate expression changes. The latter value for k(d) is in better agreement with all of the available data. (Author)
