Quantum dynamical stereochemistry of atom-diatom reactions

Abstract:

We have used density matrix techniques and angular momentum algebra to obtain quantum-mechanical equations describing the dynamical stereochemistry of the atom-diatom reaction A + BC⇌AB + C. The relative motions of reagents and products are specified by four vectors: rotational angular momenta of diatomic molecules and relative velocities of reagents and products. Our equations show how the correlations between the spatial distributions of these four vectors are related to the scattering matr...
