Abstract : A study was conducted to determine the rate of decomposition of cyclopropane in a single-pulse shock tube. The temperature range covered was 956-1412K with a concentration of 5% cyclopropane in helium-argon. Analyses were made by vapor-phase chromatography. The disagreement of the activation energy and the frequency factor with both the low temperature results and the expected unimolecular frequency factor suggests that there is a change in mechanism and, at the higher temperatures, the reaction becomes bi-molecular.
