Abstract : In this program, low pressure flames of hydrogen and hydrocarbons burning in fluorine are studied by measuring ionization, luminescence and laser induced fluorescence of intermediates. Oscillatory and pulsing behavior are noted in these flames. Experiments are designed to establish the mechanism of CH A-state emission in oxygen free combustion. Theoretical consideration of the long time behavior of bimolecular reactions has provided a general endpoint indicator for chemiluminescent gas phase titration reactions as well as a means of measuring rate constants for reactions such as H + F combination. Keywords: Fluorine, Combustion, Kinetics, Oscillation, Titration.
