Collisional Deactivation of I(5²P₁/₂) by F₂
The collisional deactivation of I*(5 2P1/2) by F2 was studied in a flow system by monitoring the time-resolved infrared emission from I*. The excited iodine atoms were produced by 266 nm laser photolysis of CF3I. A dark reaction between CF3I and F2 hindered experimental measurements and complicated their interpretation at high F2 concentrations. The data obtained at F 2 concentrations at which the extent of the dark reaction was minimal gave the total deactivation rate constant (quenching and reaction) of I* by F2, kF2=(5±3)×10-14 cm 3 molecule-1 s-1. © 1986 American Institute of Physics.
