Abstract

A unified (chain-thermal) theory is applied to cool flame and critical phenomena observed in the static oxidations of many organic compounds in the low-temperature region. The cool-flame oscillations, negative temperature coefficient, lobes on the critical curve and numerous physical discontinuities often observed are reproduced in the theory and causally linked thereby. General requirements of the type of kinetic scheme necessary are found, but the theory can throw no light on the species involved.
