Abstract

Hyperthermal reactions, such as O(3P) + HCl, are known to occur within rocket plumes and around space vehicles in low earth orbit and have been widely studied using quasiclassical trajectory calculations (QCT) among other theoretical methods. The reaction of N(2D) + H2 has been widely studied using various experimental and theoretical techniques, however little attention has been given to reactions with the ground state N atom, N(4S), due to its low reactivity. In this study, we present QCT calculations on the reaction of N(4S) + D2 and comparisons to current experimental work will also be discussed.
