UV Photolysis of N2O Isotopomers: Isotopic Fractionations and Product Rotational Quantum State Distributions
- Received Date: 2011-04-12
Abstract: The time-dependent quantum wave packet method is used to study the dynamics of the pho-todissociation processes for the isotopomers 14N14N16O, 14N15N16O, 15N15N16O, 15N15N16O, 14N14N17O, and 14N14N18O. In general, the computed isotopic fractionation factors derived from the absorption cross sections of five heavy isotopomers are in good agreement with the experimental results. Relative to the 14N14N16O isotopomer, the N2 rotational state distributions for the isotopically nitrogen substituted N2O are found to be entirely shifted to higher rotational states. Similar to its isotopic fractionation factors, the N2 rotational state distributions for the asymmetric isotopomers 14N15N16O and 15N14N16O are found to be observably different.
