Three areas of investigation on H4 and its decay products are described a Studies of the effects of rotational and vibrational excitation on the rate of electronic quenching via the maximum ionicity excited state MIES for the system H2 B He, and on the rates for angular momentum reorientation for H2B in collision with HE, Ne, Ar and molecular hydrogen are reported b A highly sensitive scheme for state-to-state detection of H2 and an intense pulsed hydrogen cluster source were developed in an extensive but unsuccessful search for high-lying Rydberg states of the H4 moiety c Results of a systematic investigation made to resolve rotational structures in the vibrational spectra of H5 H2 molecules solvated in a H3 core show that additional work is required in order to obtain definitive identification of the rotational structures.
