    The classical theory of the rate of unimolecular isomerization developed by Gray and Rice is extended in two ways. First, an improved state dependent approximation to the system separatrix is introduced. Second, a systematic approximation for the rate of intramolecular energy transfer in one...

    Laser induced fluorescence spectra of expansion-cooled NO2/Ne samples (1 and 2 K) are reported for transitions that originate from the lowest rovibronic levels and terminate on levels near D0. At 1 K, nearly all transitions originate from N‘=0. With the present resolution of 0.02 cm-1, the...

    The article offers information on a third decomposition method derived by researchers for breaking molecules named as 'roaming.' It also discusses the two existing decomposition modalities for unimolecular dissociation. First involves dissociation over a potential energy barrier into a pair of...

    Quasibound states of the HOCO intermediate in the reaction OH+CO→H+CO2 are studied by means of the stabilization method. A reduced-dimensionality model is used. The calculated resonance positions and lifetimes agree well with previous quantum scattering calculations. Most of the...

    We present a method to predict products, transition states, and reaction paths of unimolecular chemical reactions such as dissociation or rearrangement reactions of small to medium sized molecules. The method thus provides the necessary input for established procedures to compute barrier heights...

    The statistical theory of arbitrary unimolecular reactions is developed with an ergodic theoretic basis. In the process, unimolecular kinetics is derived from dynamics, in terms of well-defined mixing and time-scale assumptions. The statistical theory is then taken beyond kinetics via the new...
