FAST REACTIONS BETWEEN DIATOMIC AND POLYATOMIC-MOLECULES

Abstract:

Calculations of rate constants are presented for fast neutral reactions between polar diatomic and polyatomic molecules. The method applies the infinite-order sudden approximation to treat the rotations of the diatomic molecule and a rotationally adiabatic approximation with asymmetric top wavefunctions to describe the rotations of the polyatomic. A capture approximation is used to calculate reaction cross sections and rate constants. The interaction potential is expressed as a sum of dipole-...
