Title State-Selected Reaction of Muonium with Vibrationally Excited H-2
Abstract We report a new advance in the study of muonium (Mu) reactivity; specifically, we report the rate constant for the Mu + H2(vibrational quantum number n = 1) reaction determined by measurements at 300 K and by converged quantum mechanical calculations. Comparisons are made with earlier results for D + H2 (n = 1) and with the corresponding thermal reaction rates. The measurements are a sensitive probe of the high-curvature region in the entrance valley of the potential energy surface (PES) and thus provide a qualitatively different probe of the PES than that provided by any previous experiment.
