The high-pressure rate constant for the decomposition of [ 2H8]cyc/obutane at 443° is greater than that for ordinary cyclobutane and the fall-off of the rate constant takes place at a slightly higher pressure for the deuterated species. The decomposition of octafluorocyclobutane is shown to be a complex process unsuitable for testing theories of unimolecular reactions.
