Reaction:   n-C4H10 + ·CH3CH4 + sec-C4H9
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   859 - 1136 K
Pressure:  1.40 - 4.10 bar
Rate expression:   4.38x10-15 [cm3/molecule s] (T/298 K)3.46 e-21493 [±2760 J/mole]/RT
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Derived from fitting to a complex mechanism
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is pressure independent
Experimental procedure:   Shock tube
Excitation technique:   Thermal
Time resolution:   By end product analysis
Analytical technique:   GC-MS
Comments:   In conjunction with postshock product analyses, a network analysis based on a detailed chemical kinetic combustion model were applied. Polynomial chaos expansion techniques and Monte Carlo methods were used to analyze the data and assess uncertainties. The uncertainty in the preexponential factor is expressed as follows: A = 100.86 ± 0.16 cm3 mol-1 s-1. All uncertainties are 2σ.
