The Reactive Isotope Effect in Nuclear Recoil 18 F Reactions with CH4 and CD4 to Produce CH3F and CD3F


Journal Article

The absolute yields of single replacement products CH318F and CD318F were determined in highly moderated systems for the reaction of 18F with CH4 and CD4 respectively. Carbon tetrafluoride moderator was used in dilutions of up to 98%. The ratio of yields indicates that a reactive isotope effect exists and favors reaction with CH4 over CD4 by about 30%. The ratio of yields at 50% dilution with carbon tetrafluoride indicates that any moderating isotope effect is small. © 1972, Walter de Gruyter. All rights reserved.
