The title reactions have been studied at room temperature by applying the discharge flow method coupled with laser induced fluorescence detection of methoxy radicals and resonance fluorescence detection of bromine atoms. The following rate constants were determined: CH3O + Br → products (1) k1 (298 K) = (3.4 ± 0.4 (1σ)) × 1013 cm3 mol-1 s-1, CH3O + Br2 → products (2) k2 (298 K) ≤ 5 × 108 cm3 mol-1 s-1.
