Abstract

The specific dissociation constants for various vibrationally excited molecules (methane, ethane, and propane) are inferred from an interpretation of experimental data on atomic cracking reactions and on the deuterization of free radicals. As was to be expected, these dissociation constants decrease with increasing number of degrees of freedom of the decomposing molecule.
