Abstract:

The Variable Encounter Method is applied to the study of the transient region in vibrational accommodation of cyclobutane at high temperature surfaces. Collision efficiency declines with rise of temperature. Surface collisions are more efficient than binary gas phase encounters but the wall collisions are less efficient for cyclobutane than for cyclopropane. An exponential model of transition probabilities satisfies the data. Author
