Abstract:

Chemical kinetics research at Boston College is now proceeding in two major areas. One area involves the direct study of the kinetics of gas phase chemical reactions of metastable electronically excited atoms and molecules. In contract year 1976 we successfully demonstrated that Electron Paramagnetic Resonance EPR detection of metastable atoms in the gas phase can be combined with an electrical discharge-fast flow apparatus to obtain absolute rate constants for reactions of metastable atoms.
