Dependence of the nascent vibrational distribution of NO(v) on the photolysis wavelength of NO2 in the range lambda = 266-327 nm measured by time-resolved Fourier transform infrared emission.
Time-resolved FTIR has been used to study the photodissociation of NO2 at photolysis wavelengths of lambda = 266, 282, 295, 308, 320 and 327 nm. Nascent vibrational distributions of the NO(v) fragment have been determined at all wavelengths: 266 nm photolysis populates NO(v = 1-7) and shows a distribution that is inverted at v = 5, whereas 327 nm photolysis populates NO(v = 1-3) and is inverted at v = 2. Surprisal plots were performed on the nascent distributions presented in this work and on...Expand abstract
