Abstract

The rate constants for the two channels of the reaction of F atoms with HD, k F + HD and k F + DH, have been determined in the temperature range 193-300 K. The sum of rate constants k F + HD + k F + DH was determined by a competitive method and a discharge-flow-mass spectrometric technique, using the F + D 2 reaction as a reference reaction. By combining the results for this sum of rate constants with published results for the rate constant kF+D2 and for the ratio of rate constants k F + HD/k F + DH, values were derived for the individual rate constants k F + HD and k F + DH. The experimental results are compared with published results of quantum mechanical calculations and of quasiclassical calculations on the Stark-Werner potential energy surface.
