Title:   Reaction of carbon atoms, C(2p2, 3P) with C3H4 (allene and methylacetylene), C3H6 (propylene) and C4H8 (trans-butene): Overall rate constants and atomic hydrogen branching ratios
Journal:   Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys.
Volume:   6
Page(s):   5396 - 5401
Year:   2004
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2004LOI/BER5396-5401

Reaction:   (E)-2-C4H8 + C → Products
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   300 K
Pressure:  1.60E-3 - 2.93E-3 bar
Rate expression:   1.9x10-10 [±6.0x10-11 cm3/molecule s]
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Absolute value measured directly
Pressure dependence:   None reported
Experimental procedure:   Flow tube - Data taken vs distance
Excitation technique:   Thermal
Time resolution:   By end product analysis
Analytical technique:   Resonance fluorescence
Comments:   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 obtained. The absolute atomic hydrogen branching ratios have been measured by resonance fluorescence.
