Experimental and detailed modeling are presented for the high temperature combustion systems involving CH3Cl/CH4/O2 and C33Cl/H2/O2 reactions. More important C2 species reaction rate constant are created. A mechanism incorporating 263 step elementary reactions and 76 stable compounds and active radicals is developed based on (1) fundamental thermochemical and Kinetic principles (2) Quantum Rice-Ramsperger-Kassel (QRRK) theory analysis (3) accurate thermodynamic Properties and thermochemical analysis (4) reliable experimental data to validate our model.
The study of Part II evaluates and analyzes theoreti¬cally the rate constants of C2H6, C2H4, and C2H2 reactions with OH, O, H, and Cl important to incineration based on detailed selection of accurate experimental data and QRRK analysis. Recommended rate constants can be applied to model research.
