Title:   Rate constants for reaction of CH2FCH2F (HFC-152) and CH3CHF2 (HFC-152a) with hydroxyl radicals
Journal:   J. Phys. Chem. A

Rate expression:   3.7x10-12 [cm3/molecule s] e-9071 [J/mole]/RT
Bath gas:   He
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Relative value normalized by a reference value
Experimental procedure:   Static or low flow - Data taken vs time

Reference compounds for both reactants were ethane k(OH + ethane) = 1.00*10-11*exp{-1094/T}, cm3molecule-1s-1
and cyclopropane k(OH + cyclopropane) = 7.28*10-12*exp{-1356/T}, cm3molecule-1s-1.

Also, the JPL 97-4 recommendation for HFC-152a, CH3-CHF2
k(OH + HFC-152a) = 2.4*10-12*exp{-1260/T}, cm3molecule-1s-1
was used as a reference for HFC-152 vs 152a experiments.

Uncertainties in k(298 K) and E/R are believed to be less than 10% and 100 K, respectively.
