During the period of the grant, three papers were published connected with the chemical pumping of HF and HCl vibrational lasers. These publications laid the groundwork for our recognition of the role of very high J states in the relaxation processes activated by chemical pumping of high v states. In the first of these the results of measurements of vibrational rate constants for two different chemical laser studies and from a chemiluminescence study were critically compared. Agreement was evident among the different studies two of them conducted in other laboratories when reasonable corrections were made for energy transfer corrections. Thus this work attracted attention to near-resonant energy transfer. Author
