Paper Abstract

In the previous paper steric effects in the chemiluminescence reactions of metastable calcium atoms with isomeric propyl halide have been studied. Substantial differences in the CaCl(B2Σ)/CaCl(A2Π) branching ratio were found with isomeric variation of the targets. This has been a motivation for research presented in this work. Reactions of metastable calcium atoms in the metastable 3PJ states with all commercially available normal and branched alkyl halides were studied in a beam-gas arrangement. Chemiluminescence spectra of alkaline earth monohalides were observed for calcium reactions. Total collision and chemiluminescence cross sections were measured.
