This paper describes original work on the reactions of sulfur with oxygen in flame systems of H2 S-O2 -Ar, where the stabilized thin flame was microprobed and the quenched products of reaction were examined with a mass spectrometer. Problems in identifying reaction products are described. Although the mass spectrometer was shown capable of checking wet analyses for mixtures of gases, the composition of combustion products was not determinable accurately by this method. Preliminary kinetic data are presented for both, homogeneously and heterogeneously (catalytically) produced SO2 and SO3 .
