Molecular Structure and Dynamics, Muonium Chemistry


A pseudo first-order term has been added to the kinetic analysis of micelle-mediated muonium reactions. It is discussed with respect to enhancements of several orders of magnitude for reactions such as that of 2-propanol. It covers the possibility of ‘trapping’ of muonium followed by tunneling.
