Abstract:

The research discussed at the conference included reactive scattering studies with state selection and aligned reactants reactive and nonreactive resonances reactions of transition metal ions reactive close coupling calculations and the distorted wave and quantal transition state theories of reactive scattering potential energy surfaces experimental studies of vibrational and rotational energy transfer collisions in the vapor and condensed phases, in ions in flow tubes, and at surfaces collision-free energy transfer infrared and visible fluorescence, theory and experiment for collisions of open-shell and electronically excited molecules collisional interactions of molecules with surfaces desorption helium beam diffraction and photodissociation. The plenary discussions following the lectures were exceptionally vital and provided a strong indication of the current excitement in this field. The posters covered an even broader spectrum of work on the dynamics of molecular collisions.
