Abstract

The multichannel C + allene, methylacetylene, propylene and trans-butene reactions were studied, at room temperature, in a low-pressure fast-flow reactor. Carbon atoms were obtained from the reaction of CBr4 with potassium atoms. The overall rate constants were found to be (2.7 ± 0.5) × 10−10, (2.9 ± 0.4) × 10−10, (2.6 ± 0.4) × 10−10, and (1.9 ± 0.6) × 10−10 cm3 molecule−1 s−1, respectively. The absolute atomic hydrogen branching ratios have been measured by resonance fluorescence in the vacuum ultraviolet: H (C + C3H4 (allene)) = 1.00−0.06+0.00, H (C + C3H4 (methylacetylene)) = 0.85 ± 0.06, H (C + C3H6 (propylene)) = 0.51 ± 0.08, H (C + C4H8 (trans-butene)) = 0.33 ± 0.08.
