The upper limit to k_4 (FO+O_3 → products) ⩽ 4.0× 10^(−18) cm^3/molecule s, derived from a reassessment of the F_2-photosensitized decomposition of O_3, severely restricts the possibility that stratospheric ozone might be depleted in cycles involving F/FO_x radicals. A lower limit to k_3 (FO_2+O_3 → products) ⩾ 5 × 10^(−16) cm^3/molecule s, is also estimated.
