Abstract

Following photodissociation of vinyl chloride seeded in a He supersonic jet at 193 nm, rotationally resolved infrared emission of HCl (v) are recorded to yield nascent rotational and vibrational distributions. Preliminary results show that the rotational distribution of HCl free from rotational quenching deviates slightly from Boltzmann-type distribution and agrees well with trajectory calculations; a portion of the low-J component observed previously in a flow system is attributed to quenching. The implications for photodissociation dynamics are discussed.
