Abstract : The purpose of the work sponsored by grant AFOSR 80-0061 was to study the highly exoergic gas phase reactions of boron atoms. The main goal of these studies is to obtain a basic understanding of exoergic reactions of non metal atoms. These types of reactions play a fundamental role in fields such as combustion, plasma chemistry, laser induced chemistry and chemical lasers. We have completed rate and chemiluminescence studies of boron atom reactions with most of the important oxygen containing molecules of interest. From the results of these studies we are now able to suggest a qualitative model that may explain the nature of these reactions.
