A prototype of an inductively heated flow reactor for gas kinetic studies is presented. The applicability of the system, which is based on a direct coupling between the reactor and the ion source of a mass spectrometer, is illustrated by investigations of a series of simple bond fission reactions. The method permits the direct determination of low-pressure rate constants, the transformation to high-pressure values, and correspondingly evaluation of activation parameters, being derived by means of an empirical effective temperature approach.
