Studies of Vibrationally Excited Molecules by Infrared Chemiluminescence

  • Ian W. M. Smith

Abstract

As the proceedings of this conference demonstrate, the subject of chemiluminescence is primarily concerned with the observation of radiation from electronically excited species in the visible region of the spectrum or at shorter wavelengths. Chemiluminescence in the infrared is generally associated with the formation of reaction products which are in their ground electronic state but excited vibrationally. Largely due to the later development of infrared detectors which even approach the efficiency of those used for shorter wavelengths, experimental studies of infrared chemiluminescence are all of quite recent origin, the first laboratory observation of spontaneous emission in the instrumental infrared from a chemically formed, vibrationally excited molecule being reported by Cashion and Polanyi in 1958.1
