Title:   Experimental and Modeling Study of Shock-Tube Oxidation of Acetylene
Journal:   Int J. Chem. Kinet.
Volume:   35
Page(s):   391 - 414
Year:   2003
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2003EIT/FRE391-414

Reaction:   H2 + ·C2HC2H2 +
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   200 - 2000 K
Rate expression:   2.3x10-12 [cm3/molecule s] (T/298 K)2.22 e-3833 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Review
Data type:   Extensive literature review
Comments:   No direct measurements of rate constants. Rate constants reported are either from estimates or optimization fits. Enthalpies of formation were also allowed to be varied in fits. This paper is combined experimental and modeling. These measurements consist of shock tube oxidation of C2H2 at temperatures of 1150-2130 K, pressures of 0.9-1.9 atm in Argon, with lean to rich conditions (Phi = 0.06 to 1.7). CO produced was detected using CO laser absorption at 2077.1 cm-1

Rate expressions for C2H + H2 -> C2H2 + H and C2H + C2H2 -> C4H2 + H were reported based on fits to data in the literature.
