Abstract

The reaction of the cyano radical (CN) with ethane (C2H6) was studied using time resolved infrared absorption to monitor the product hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in individual ro-vibrational states. Pulse laser photolysis was used to provide an initial excess of the CN radical and the time dependence of individual ro-vibrational states of the high frequency antisymmetric stretching mode of HCN (0,0, v3) was followed. These experiments reveal that the initial product state distribution of HCN is not highly excited in the HCN(0,0, v3) vibrational manifold.
