Competition between hydrogen fluoride and hydrogen chloride molecular elimination channels in the infrared multiple-photon decomposition of 1,2-dichloro-1,1-difluoroethane.
Access this Article
Time-resolved infrared emission spectra have been measured in the infrared multiple-photon decomposition of CClF<SUB>2</SUB>CH<SUB>2</SUB>Cl. The spectra were composed of emissions attributable to vibrationally excited HF<SUP>*</SUP> and HCl<SUP>*</SUP>. The emission yield of HF<SUP>*</SUP> increased rapidly with an increase in the fluence, while the yield of HCl<SUP>*</SUP> showed a maximum at 20 J cm<SUP>−2</SUP>. These results suggest that the HF and HCl molecular elimination channels compete with each other in the unimolecular decomposition of highly vibrationally excited parent molecules. The stochastic trajectory calculations provided a satisfactory description of the fluence dependences of the HF and HCl yields observed here for CClF<SUB>2</SUB>CH<SUB>2</SUB>Cl and previously for CHClFCHClF.
