Yield of electronically excited CN molecules from the dissociative recombination of HNC+ with electrons.

Abstract

The authors have studied CN(B-X) and CN(A-X) emissions produced by the dissociative recombination of HNC+ ions with thermal electrons in a flowing afterglow experiment. A separate drift tube study showed that the reaction Ar(+)+HCN, the precursor reaction used in the flow-tube experiment, produces predominantly HNC+ rather than the more energetic HCN… (More)
