There has been considerable debate and speculation about the role of weakly bound complexes in radical-molecule reactions in the gas phase, especially in atmospheric chemistry. Among the significant number of potentially important molecular aggregates in chemical reactions, water complexes are of particular interest. Beyond the well-known energy transfer(More)
Recent work has focused on the damaging effects of free radicals on biological molecules. This study investigates the kinetics of the attack of OH radicals on L-alanine ethyl ester in the gas phase in cold beams of Laval nozzle expansions. Experiments and high-level theory are used to understand the preferred site of attack by the OH radical. Optimizations(More)
