Abstract:

The aim of this project, together with 2 previous 1-year grants sought to understand and ultimately to stereo-control the reactive outcome of polyatomic reactions by vibrational excitations of reactants. Specifically, we unraveled the steric effects of chemical reactions with two complementary experimental approaches 1 by selecting a single ro-vibrational state of reactants, and 2 by pre-aligning the reactive bonds in space.
