COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using F2/CO/O2 gas mixtures and a flash photolysis/time resolved UV-vis spectrometer system.

Absorption cross sections at 0.5-nm intervals have been obtained by personal communication from M.Matti Maricq (April 1999).

In a preliminary study a qualitative spectrum (absorbance vs. wavenumber) has been analyzed and assigned to the B 2A1 - X 2B2 system by

The kinetics of FC(O)O reactions with a number of atmospherically important species and other reactants has studied by laser flash photolysys/transient UV-visible spectroscopy by
