Abstract : This program represents part of a continuing study, in progress since 1976, of the elementary processes important in combustion, flame and ignition phenomena. In the course of pursuing this research we have developed significantly new experimental techniques for studying atom and radical reactions and new theoretical models for those processes. We have, in addition, extended our efforts to include ionic processes and the effects of solvents on both radical and ionic reactions. (Author)
