Paper Abstract

As a result of recent work, gas phase metathetical reactions of formaldehyde represent a particularly well-studied group of chemical reactions'-8. A wide variety of studies have been conducted including real-time108-8 and relativerate kinetics9, product energy distributions2'10'11 and theoretical calculations12. The interest prompting these studies is two-fold. First, the removal of reactive species, such as atomic chlorine, from the stratosphere via reaction with formaldehyde could have a tremendous impact on the ecological effects of anthropogenically released substances. Secondly, these reactions are generally quite fast and are of considerable interest from a dynamic point of view.
