Work Group Prof. Dr. F. Temps

Dr. Gleb Eshchenko (Institute of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow)

Gleb has been visiting Kiel from January 2001 until the end of 2002. He was interested in the kinetics of elementary reactions in the NOx-reburning mechanism by time-resolved direct techniques. His experiments involved excimer laser flash photolysis of CH2CO in a tubular flow reactor coupled to a mass spectrometer. The challenge will be to reach high temperatures up to 1300 K. He has also been involved in our work on silane reactions.
