Comments:   Predicted rate expression based on low temperature/low pressure experiments and a two-dimensional solution to the master equation.Microcannonical/J-resolved rate constants calculated by variable-reaction-coordinate transition-state theory employing a CAS+1+2+QC/aug-cc-pvtz analytic potential energy surface.
Fcent(T) = 0.674(T/298)-0.414exp(-38.7/T)

Reported rate constant is the high-pressure limit from RRKM calculations, but reaction was in the fall-off regime over the range of pressures studied.

Cl atoms generated by reaction of F with HCl; CH3 generated by reaction of F with CH4.
