[en] Highlights: • First Laser Induced Fluorescence studies on the reaction kinetics of OH radical with thiophene. • Temperature dependent rate coefficients are measured. • Arrhenius parameters are determined for the OH + Thiophene reaction. • Negative temperature dependence is observed. Absolute rate coefficient for the gas phase reaction of OH radical with thiophene has been measured using the laser photolysis (LP) – laser induced fluorescence (LIF) technique. The kinetics measurements were done over the temperature range of 272–353 K and pressure range of 20–30 Torr. The bimolecular rate coefficients obtained were pressure independent in the above pressure range and showed Arrhenius type behaviour which were fitted to the expression k(T) = (4.53 ± 0.55) × 10−12 exp[(250 ± 30)/T] cm3 molecule−1 s−1. The reaction shows weak negative temperature dependence. These results were discussed with available literature and the tropospheric lifetime of thiophene was calculated.
