Paper Abstract

Measurements of the translational and internal state distributions of OH products produced in the biomolecular reaction 16O(1D) + H218O yields 16OH + 18OH are reviewed. These detailed measurements reveal relationships between the states of geminate fragments produced in individual reaction events. Preliminary measurements on the same reaction initiated in O3(DOT)H2O clusters formed in free jet expansions are reported. The dynamics of the cluster reaction are dramatically different than those of the biomolecular reaction. The results indicate that the third body present in the cluster (O2), carries a significant amount of the energy produced in the reaction.
