    Chemical Species DeltaHf(kJmol^-1) DeltaGf(kJmol^-1) DeltaS(Jmol^-1K^-1)
    SO2(g) -296.8 -300.1 248.2
    Cl2(g) 0 - 223.0
    SO2Cl2(g) -364.0 -320.0 311.9

    For the chemical reaction SO2(g) + Cl2(g) -> SO2Cl2(g), at what temperature does the reaction switch from being spontaneous to non-spontaneous? Report your answer to 4 significant figures.
