The rate 7 of chain carrier formation per unit volume is represented by the numerator of equation (11). The factor λ in this expression decreases with increasing pressure; furthermore, it is difficult to imagine that m0 can increase with more than the first power of the partial pressure of one of the reactants such as hydrogen.

For the gas-phase reaction between H 0 2 and H 2 two alternatives sug­ gest themselves. One is reaction (XI) and the other is H 0 2 -f H 2 = H 2 0 + OH. The former reaction is endothermic and the latter is strongly exothermic, but this furnishes no basis for estimating the relative prob­ abilities of the two reactions since the rate coefficients depend on the unknown activation energies and steric factors. Evidence in favor of reaction (XI) is furnished by the fact that considerable amounts of hy­ drogen peroxide are formed in mixtures of hydrogen and oxygen at tem­ peratures and pressures between the second and third explosion limits.
