Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three-dimensional time-dependent quantum wave-pack calculations were carried out for the F+HCl and F+DCl reactions. The energy-dependence of reaction probability exhibited oscillating structure in the F+HCl reaction. The effects of initial state excitation on the total reaction probabilities as a function of collision energy were investigated. The rotational excitation led to an increase in the reaction probability at low collision energy. Thermal rate constants for the reactions are calculated.
