Intermolecular Interactions and Elementary Reactions

Studies of several intermolecular interactions and chemical reactions

In the past we have computed accurate coupled potential energy surfaces for elementary reactions such as

F(2P1/2,2P3/2)+ H→ HF + H

These were subsequently used in quantum reactive scatting calculations. Our particular interest was on the effect of spin-orbit and non-adiabatic interactions on the reaction dynamics. Furthermore, we have computed various intermolecular interaction potentials and studied collision-induced rotational, vibrational, and electronic relaxation processes.

Examples of Potential Energy Surfaces (click on the reaction for more information):

F + H2 → HF + H

Li + HF → LiF + H

Cl + H2 → HCl + H
