Fast Vibrational Relaxation of OH (v=9) By Ammonia and Ozone
S A. Nizkorodov, W W. Harper, David Nesbitt
Vibrational relaxation of OH(X2II) in the Ņ=9 state by O3 and NH3 has been studied via flash-photolysis using high-resolution direct infrared absorption detection of OH in the Ņ= 11 <- 9 band. OH (nu = 9) removal by O3 occurs with a nearly gas-kinetic rate (ko, = 1.37 (15) x 10-10 cm3/s). Collisional removal by NH3 (KNH3 = 7.60(50) x 10-10 cm3/s) is two to three times higher than the hard-sphere collision limit, suggesting a resonant V-V energy transfer induced by long-range dipole-dipole interactions. An upper limit of 5 x 10-14 cm3/s is placed on OH(nu = 9) vibrational relaxation by argon.
