Abstract

Relative Arrhenius parameters have been determined for the addition of pentafluoroethyl radicals to each end of vinyl fluoride, vinylidene fluoride, trifluoroethylene and to tetrafluoroethylene taking ethylene as standard. The results compare very well with our earlier data for trifluoromethyl radicals. The pentafluoroethyl radicals are more selective and this selectivity can be attributed to changes in the activation energy term. The combined data are used to produce "revised" data for heptafluoropropyl radicals.
