|A seminar on recent results by one of the founders of the Muonium chemistry investigations. Quantum effects in the reaction with muonium, the ultra-light isotope of Hydrogen.
The depth of the H(Mu)CO potential well is
quite shallow (~80 kJ/mol) and, due to its
pronounced zero-point energy, sustains only
two bound vibrational states for MuCO. The
Mu+CO recombination reaction rates are well
described by the Isolated Resoance theory of
Bowman and co-workers.
