Comments:   The authors studied the reaction of CF3 radicals in the presence of various isotopically labeled O2 and CO at temperatures near 273 K.. CF3 was formed by the UV photolysis of perfluoroacetic anhydride at 254 nm. All the possible isotopomers of the intermediated trioxide, CF3OC(O)OOOC(O)OCF3 and the stable peroxide CF3OC(O)OOC(O)OCF3 were selectively formed. Analyssi was by FTIR spectroscopy and ab iito calculations. The authors conclude that the acyloxy raadical CF3OCO2 must have a lifetime longer than previously thought near 273 K.
