Sipes, Christopher N. (1989) Real-time measurements of a bimolecular reaction. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechTHESIS:04022010-095849815
A method is described for the initiation of a bimolecular reaction with a laser. This allows the time resolution of bimolecular kinetics with ultrafast laser spectroscopy. Such kinetics are described for the case of H + CO_2 => OH + CO. The rise in OH is measured and examined via the proper intermediate-mediated kinetics -- the "biphasic" expression. The effect of restricting the impact parameter of the hydrogen atom on the carbon dioxide is also considered.
