17 June 1994 Photochemistry of the N2O-H2O complexes produced in supersonic jets

We have studied 193 nm photodissociation of N2O(DOT)H2O complexes produced in a supersonic jet resulting in the reactant-pair reaction N2O(DOT)H2O + hv yields 2OH + N2. Measured internal energy, and spin-orbit and (Lambda) -doublet distributions in OH by laser induced fluorescence suggest a reaction scheme much different from the corresponding bimolecular reaction, O(1D) + H2O yields 2OH, observed in bulb experiments. The reaction should occur indirectly with early escape of N2 and proceed slowly in a relatively long-lived intermediate O(DOT)H2O.
