Shock-Tube Studies on the Decomposition of Tetramethyl-Lead and the Formation of Lead Oxide Particles
Proceedings of the Royal Society A
Plates 1 and 2] The decomposition of tetramethyl-lead (TML) in dilute ( < 0.2 % vol.) mixtures with argon, argon + oxygen, and air, has been examined behind incident shock waves. The rate of decomposition of TML has been measured over a temperature range of 890 to 1060 K and found to be first order with a rate constant, k in units of s-1, given by lgfc = (13.25 ± 0.4) -(9.0 ± 0.4) x 103/T. The rate was unaffected by the presence of an 800-fold excess of oxygen. A sensitive turbidimetricdoi:10.1098/rspa.1972.0031 fatcat:4cx2ghobhnbhnhipaaqgxg5ita
