Abstract

The transition-state region of the F ``plus'' H2 reaction has been studied by photoelectron spectroscopy of FH sup ``minus''2. New para and normal FH sup ``minus''2 photoelectron spectra have been measured in refined experiments and are compared here with exact three-dimensional quantum reactive scattering simulations that use an accurate new ab initio potential energy surface for F ``plus'' H2. The detailed agreement that is obtained between this fully ab initio theory and experiment is unprecedented for the F ``plus'' H2 reaction and suggests that the transition state region of the F ``plus'' H2 potential energy surface has finally been understood quantitatively.
