Abstract:

The research was focused on two major areas. The first area is the advancement of new techniques to elucidate elementary steps of reactions in complex molecular systems. In the second area, the effort was on the applications of these techniques to i the studies of reactive intermediates of energetic reactions, and ii the dynamics of prototype molecular explosives. We have succeeded in advancing the new techniques for the studies of structure and dynamics of highly-excited and energetic molecules, and the progress in theoretical and experimental studies has been published in a series of papers.
