Abstract

Abstract Rate constants for the reactions of hydroxyl radicals (OH) with methyl 2,2,2-trifluoroethyl-1-trifluoromethyl ether (CH3-O-CH-(CF3)2 and 4-bromo-3-chloro-3,4,4-trifluoro-1-butene (CH2=CH-CFCl-CF2Br) have been measured over the temperature range 230 K to 370 K to give the following Arrhenius expressions: k1 = 7.21×10-14×(T/298)^3.06×exp(+361/T), cm3 molecule-1 s-1 k2 = 6.45×10-13×exp(+424/T), cm3 molecule-1 s-1 Atmospheric lifetimes of compounds were estimated to be 67 days and 4.5 days, respectively. UV absorption spectrum spectra of CH2=CH-CFCl-CF2Br and (CH3-O-CH-(CF3)2 were measured between 164 nm and 260 nm at T = 295 K and IR absorption spectrum of CH3-O-CH-(CF3)2 was measured between 450 cm-1 and 1600 cm-1.
