By use of a laser magnetic resonance technique to measure the concentration of chlorine atoms generated in an electric discharge, it is established that on a pyrex surface treated with boric or phosphoric acid destruction the chlorine atoms has a reaction order below first order all the way to zero. The rate of destruction of chlorine atoms changes reversibly with time in the course of interaction of the atoms with the surface. A model is proposed, explaining the dependence of the destruction rate on the concentration and the interaction time with the surface. It is shown that these relationships must be taken into account in measuring the rate constants of elementary gas-phase reactions by jet methods.
