Abstract : This report summarizes a series of shock tube experiments. During this time period, a CO laser was calibrated for the purpose of monitoring CO formation rates during the decomposition of several organic molecules. The compounds investigated were formic acid (HCOOH), formaldehyde (HCHO), ketene (CH2CO), and cyclobutanone (C4H6O). The decomposition data are under analysis.
