Time resolution:   In real time
Analytical technique:   Laser induced fluorescence
The rate coefficient for the reaction of OH with acetone, k1, was measured by producing OH via pulsed laser photolysis and detecting it via laser-induced fluorescence to be
k1(T) = 1.38*10-13 + 3.86*10-11*exp(-1997/T) cm3/( molecule s).

The rate constant at T = 298 k is determined as:
k1(298) = (1.77 ?0.16)*10-13, cm3/( molecule s)
The quoted uncertainty is 9% at the 95% confidence level and includes the estimated systematic error.

He, N2, SF6 were used as bath gases with the total pressure range between 25 Torr to 490 Torr.

The discharge flow measurements were also done at the pressure between 1.1 Torr and 3 Torr; at temperatures 238 K, 296 K, 333 K, and 353 K.
