Abstract : A table of recommended rate constants for gas phase chemical reactions occurring in combustion is presented. Specifically, it gives in tabular form the values of the parameters for the modified Arrhenius equation k=ATbexp (-E/RT). The table covers reactions occurring in the combustion, oxidation and decomposition of aliphatic saturated or unsaturated Cl to ClO hydrocarbons, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, thiols, ether, peroxides, amines, amides and their free radicals, as well as the reactions of O, O2, H, H2, OH, H2O, H2O2, N, N2, NO, N2O, NO2, N2O4, N2O5, S, S2, SH, SO, SO2, SOH, NS, with each other. The table includes 169 first order reactions 782 second order reactions and 57 third order reactions. There are 1770 entries covering 1008 distinct chemical reactions. These recommendations have been taken from eleven evaluations and critical reviews published between 1970 and 1976. The papers examined by the evaluators extend from the nineteen fifties up to and including 1975. (Author)
