    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:16079-82. 2006
    ..We therefore speculate that the second pathway in acetaldehyde also occurs via a roaming mechanism in the CH(3) + HCO exit channel that decays into the CH(4) + CO channel...

    J Chem Phys 122:174304. 2005
    ..The angular distributions of the products are in qualitative agreement with excitation to the N(2)O(D (1)Sigma(+)) state, with participation as well by the (3)Pi(v) state...

    J Chem Phys 121:10437-46. 2004
    ..At 132.7 nm, both the O((1)D)+O((3)P) and the O((3)P)+O((3)P) channels are observed with branching ratios of 0.40+/-0.08 and 0.60+/-0.09, respectively. At 130.2 nm, the quantum yield for production of O((1)D) is 0.76+/-0.28...

    J Chem Phys 128:151101. 2008
    ..The translational energy distributions for the methyl and acetylene products of these two mechanisms are substantially different. Both of these allyl dissociation channels are minor pathways compared to hydrogen atom loss...
