Discusses the partitioning between spin-orbit states of the hydroxide (OH) product in reactions of O(3P) with saturated hydrocarbons. Notable propensity for very low rotational energy release of the dynamics of the systems; Effect of the spatial degeneracy of the states in the two OH spin-orbit manifolds; Model predictions.
