ROTATIONAL ALIGNMENT AND NONSTATISTICAL LAMBDA-DOUBLET POPULATION IN NO FOLLOWING (CH3)3CONO PHOTODISSOCIATION Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract The rotational alignment and internal state distribution of the NO fragment ejected from the photodissociation of (CH 3 ) 3 CONO in its first absorption band are determined. The rotational distribution is non-Boltzmann and unaffected by the dissociating wavelength. The NO fragment is rotationally aligned and the Π − antisymmetric. Λ doublet component is preferentially populated, indicating planarity of the fragmentation process.
