ABSTRACT
Chemiluminescent (CL) reaction of bismuth with F2 has been studied in a beam-gas arrangement under single-collision conditions. Time-of-flight (TOF) measurements suggest that the Bi2 dimer is the major beam reactant responsible for the observed CL. The bond dissociation energy of BiF has been estimated by observing the short wavelength limit in the B 0+—X10+ emission spectrum of BiF. The estimated lower bound of 3.7±0.1 eV is in good agreement with a recent determination of the bond dissociation energy of BiF. The vibrational distributions of the CL product states provide information on the potential energy surfaces governing the reaction.
