Abstract : The rate constants for the production of vibrationally excited oxygen in the reactions O + ClO2 to O2 + C10 and O + ClO to O2 + Cl are approximately equal. The oxygen initially receives 45 plus or minus 10% of the heat of reaction in the form of vibrational energy. Extinction coefficients have been measured for several bands of the C-X, D-X and E-X systems of ClO2 in the vacuum ultraviolet. Five new systems are reported between 141 and 128 nm. Two of these, F-X and J-X, and the C-X system form a Rydberg series for an ionization potential of 10.36 eV. (Modified author abstract)
