Intersystem crossing in methylene

Tai Yup Chang, Harold Basch

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Singlet-triplet intersystem crossing in methylene is considered as a two step process: (a) reversible intramolecular equilibration of singlet and triplet species, and (b) collisional deactivation of the vibrationally excited triplet state. The overall process is predicted to be bimolecular, in agreement with the experimental observation of Eder et al.
