Abstract : Molecular beam experiments show that reactions of oxygen atoms with Br2, I2,IC1, and IBr proceed via long-lived collision complexes. In the mixed halogen case, a large yield of IO was found, but no Cl0 or BrO. These results suggest the intermediate complexes are unsymmetrical species, O-Br-Br, O-I-Cl, which are probably stable by greater than 20 kcal/mol and in triplet spin states.
