The fate of stratospheric trihalomethyl radicals, resulting from the photo-dissociation of chlorofluoromethane, has been explored in relation to their role in reactions leading to ozone depletion. Oxidation reactions involving CX3Ox. radicals (X = F or Cl) are discussed from a thermochemical viewpoint in regards to their potential significance to atmospheric processes.
