Abstract

The channel leading to Br2 molecular elimination in 248 nm photolysis of bromoform was observed using cavity ring-down spectroscopy. It was observed that since the ring-down time lasts 500 ns, the rotational population of the Br2 may not be of nascent nature. The vibrational population ratio of Br2(v=1)/Br2(v=0)=0.8±0.2 implied that the fragmented Br2 is vibrationally hot. It was found that the observed vibrationally hot Br2 fragment favors the dissociation pathway from high vibrational levels of the ground state.
