Predissociation and geminate recombination kinetics of I2 in liquid xenon and CCl4 Academic Article uri icon


  • The kinetics of I2 predissociation and recombination have been studied by picosecond spectroscopy. Predissociation occurs with a lifetime of 14 ps, and the geminate recombination process proceeds with 40 ps lifetime. The spectra indicate the existence of a previously undetected I-CCL complex with >150 ps lifetime. 1982.
