A single-pulse shock tube has been designed, constructed and used to study the kinetics of methyl iodide and ethyl iodide pyrolysis in the range 2700-2900 °K. For methyl iodide the chief products are methane, ethylene, acetylene and iodine and for ethyl iodide they are the same plus ethane. The experimental data seem to support a mechanism in methyl iodide pyrolysis that is free-radical in nature and involves one activation step. In the ethyl iodide case there appear to be two separate free-radical activations, one involving cleavage of the carbon-carbon bond and the other that of the carbon- iodine bond.
