Examination of decomposition reactions for HCFC's

HCl2I was synthesized with the intention of using photocatalysis facilitated by Hg2I2 to generate chemically activated CHCl2CHCl2 from radical CHCl2. The unimolecular decomposition reactions and their rates would then be quantified based on the ratio of decomposed products. Radical CF3 and radical CHCl2 would then be reacted to form chemically activated CF3CHCl2. Its decomposition reactions and rates would then be determined based on the ratio of products. The intention behind this project is to expand data on the reactions that hydrochlorofluorocarbons will undergo, as they are a commercially important class of greenhouse gases, which are in the process of being re-engineered to be more environmentally friendly. Understanding the reactions they will undergo is key to their efficient recycling.
