Abstract: Spectroscopic methods have been used for years to follow chemical process. We have used FTIR spectroscopy to follow the thermal decomposition of 2, 2, 4, 4-etramethycyelobutanedione (TMCBD) into one of its products, dimethylketene (DMK). This process is too fast to be followed accurately by standard IR spectroscopic methods. Using the time-resolved Fourier transform technique, many spectra can be collected in a very short period of time. This allows us to calculate the standard kinetics parameters by following the integrated peak areas of the TMCBD and DMK as a function of time.
