The decomposition and the collisional deactivation of energized ethylene formed in the photolyses of ethane, propane, n-butane, and cyclobutane at 1470 Å have been studied from the change in ethylene and acetylene yields with varying pressures of alkane or nitrogen added as a deactivator. The rate constants of the collisional deactivation and decomposition of energized ethylene were determined from the experimental data. The unimolecular decomposition theory has been applied to energized ethylene, and the results compared with the experimental rate constants.
