A Simple Model for the High Energy Reaction of O(+) Ions with N2.
GENERAL RESEARCH CORP SANTA BARBARA CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A rough semi-empirical model is presented for the reaction O N2 yields NO N as it has been found to occur for either vibrationally excited nitrogen or high-energy O ions. The model is based on an assumed crossing of potential energy surfaces. It finds the rapid energy dependence of the reaction rate on both vibrational state and on kinetic energy in the Franck-Condon overlap integral. This integral is constructed by parameterizing initial and final potential energy surfaces in their dependence on the N-N coordinate only, in such a way as to reproduce the experimental dependence on both vibrational and translational energy.
