PROPERTIES AND REACTIVITY OF GAS PHASE FREE RADICALS AND DEVELOPMENT OF MOLECULAR BEAM REACTOR.
BIRMINGHAM UNIV (ENGLAND)
The work reported is concerned with development and applications of a technique for the study of the primary products of reactive bi-molecular collisions. The method is based on passing a high intensity molecular beam of one reactant through a vessel containing the second reactant at very low pressure, and detecting the collision products by mass-spectrometer techniques. Four methods previously used for producing accelerated beams of neutral molecules, are reviewed. It is concluded that neutralization of an ion beam is the best method for present purposes, as it is capable of giving a continuous supply of mole cules with sufficiently great translational energy.
