I(²P₁/₂) Deactivation by ICl and Cl₂

Abstract

The rates of deactivation of I(2P1/2) by ICl and Cl2 have been measured in a fast-flow apparatus. The rate constant obtained for deactivation by ICl is fast (k = 1.5 × 10-11 cm3 molecule-1 s-1) and is in good agreement with previous determinations by other workers. The rate constant obtained for deactivation by Cl2, however, is much slower (k = 1.7 × 10-14 cm3 molecule-1 s-1) and is in contrast to earlier determinations by other workers, using static bulb techniques, who report much faster rates. Possible reasons for the discrepancy are advanced, and a possible mechanism to account for the fast deactivation by IC1 is suggested. © 1984 American Chemical Society.
