Abstract
The laser flash photolysis technique in a flow system with real time mass spectrometry detection is a suitable tool monitor the time evolution of chemical reactions. IR and UV lasers have been used to generate radicals to initiate a chemical reaction in a gas mixture. The appropriate selection of the pressure regimes (μtorr - 760 torr), the laser pulse repetition rate and the sample residence time in the photoreactor make possible the selective detection of final and intermediate reaction products. The selection of the temporal scales enables the independent study of the different stages of a process through the elimination of certain radical reactions. The rate constants associated to the corresponding kinetic scheme can be therefore determined and the reaction channels can be established. This technique was implemented for the study of oxidation reactions of chlorofluorocarbons of atmospheric interest.
