Paper Abstract

The orientation dependence in the spin changing collisions C2H2O2(S1)+AryieldsC2H2O2(T1)+Ar and C2H2(S1)+AryieldsC2H2(T)+Ar has been examined by time-resolved laser induced fluorescence studies of the intersystem crossing rates in the C2H2O2-Ar and C2H2-Ar complexes with different isomeric structures. It was found that when Ar interacts primarily with the n(O) orbital the S1yieldsT1 transition rate is about two orders of magnitude faster than that induced by Ar interacting primarily with the (pi) *(CO) orbital. On the other hand, the studies in acetylene show that the Ar induced intersystem crossing rate is nearly identical for both the (pi) and (pi) * orbitals.
