    The additions of two sulfur fluoride derivatives (SF3C6F5 and SF3CN) to a flowing afterglow were studied by variable electron and neutral density mass spectrometry. Data collection and analysis were complicated by the high reactivity of the neutral species. Both species readily dissociatively...
