Nonadiabatic interactions in the Cl + H2 reaction probed by ClH2- and ClD2- photoelectron imaging.

Abstract:

The degree of electronic and nuclear coupling in the Cl + H2 reaction has become a vexing problem in chemical dynamics. We report slow electron velocity-map imaging (SEVI) spectra of ClH2- and ClD2-. These spectra probe the reactant valley of the neutral reaction potential energy surface, where nonadiabatic transitions responsible for reactivity of the Cl excited spin-orbit state with H2 would occur. The SEVI spectra reveal progressions in low-frequency Cl.H2 bending and stretching modes, and...
