Three and four center unimolecular elimination reactions of HCl
have been investigated for CHF2C1, CHFC12, CH3CCl , CH3CF2C1 and
CHC1CF2 in a molecular beam experiment using infrared multiphoton
absorption to energize the molecule. The translational energy
distributions obtained in this work show that the average trans-
lational energy released to the fragments is around 8-12 kcal/mole,
except for the three center elimination reaction from CHClCF2, which
gives a value of 1 kcal/mole. In four center eliminations, the
translational energy released is less than 20% of the potential
energy barrier of the back reaction. This is somewhat less than
previous indications that approximately 30% of the potential energy
barrier of the exit channel in four center reactions should be
released into translation.
