Title:   Gas-Phase Hydrolysis of SOCl2 at 297 and 309 K: Implications for Its Atmospheric Fate
Journal:   J. Phys. Chem. A
Volume:   107
Page(s):   6183 - 6190
Year:   2003
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2003JOH/DIS6183-6190

Reaction:   SOCl2 + H2OSO2 + HCl + HCl
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   309 K
Pressure:  0.99 - 1.00 bar
Rate expression:   4.3x10-21 [±1.5x10-21 cm3/molecule s]
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Absolute value measured directly
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is pressure independent
Experimental procedure:   Static or low flow - Data taken vs time
Excitation technique:   Thermal
Time resolution:   In real time
Analytical technique:   Fourier transform (FTIR)
Comments:   Experiments carried out with a pulsed-aliquot kinetic method. Concentrations also measured by GC-MS.
SOCl2 decay data are consistent wtih, but do not prove, a bimolecular gas-phase hydrolysis reaction.
