Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry Using a Very-Long-Pathlength Cell: Dioxygen Difluoride Stability and Reactions with Plutonium Compounds

Volume 39, Number 4 (Aug. 1985) Page 625-628

Kim, K.C.; Campbell, G.M.

A unique spectroscopic device combining a Fourier transform infrared spectrometry instrument and a very-long-pathlength cell (a few hundred meters) is described. It shows much promise for spectroscopic studies of unstable or transient species at extremely low concentrations in a temperature-controlled environment. Results are presented of dioxygen difluoride (O2F2) fluorination reactions with Pu compounds and of O2F2 thermal stability measurements in the cell.
