The clearest dynamical signature of a roaming reaction is a very cold distribution of energy into the rotational and translational degrees of freedom of the roaming donor fragment (e.g. CO) and an exceptionally hot vibrational distribution in the roaming acceptor fragment (e.g. H2, CH4). These signatures were initially identified in joint experimental/theoretical investigations of roaming in H2CO and CH3CHO and are now used to infer the presence of roaming mechanisms in other photodissociatio...Expand abstract
