Abstract:

Information concerning the initial distribution of energy in simple atom-molecule exchange reactions giving hydrogen fluoride is reported. The method used to obtain experimental data is that of infrared chemiluminescence using the flowtube technique. Population inversion of vibrational energy levels has been detected in all systems which have so far been studied. Potential energy surfaces are being developed which when used in classical trajectory calculations give a satisfactory prediction of the kinetic properties of the atomic hydrogenF2 reaction. The progress in the use of vacuum ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy to detect transient species and obtain ionization potentials and information concerning ionic states is reviewed. Author
