Time-of-flight data of the D5-diphenyl molecule recorded at at selected laboratory angles; open circles represent experimental data, the solid line the fit.
Upper: Laboratory angular distribution of the D5-diphenyl molecule recorded at . Circles and error bars indicate experimental data, the solid lines the calculated distribution, and CM the center-of-mass angle. Lower: Newton diagram for the reaction of phenyl radicals with D6-benzene. The circle stands for the maximum center-of-mass recoil velocity of the D5-diphenyl product.
Center-of-mass angular flux distribution (upper) and center-of-mass translational energy flux distribution (lower) for the reaction of phenyl radicals with D6-benzene to form atomic deuterium plus the D5-biphenyl molecule.
Schematic representation of the reaction mechanism of phenyl radicals with D6-benzene leading to D5-diphenyl plus atomic deuterium (right) via a doublet radical intermediate (center). Carbon, hydrogen, and deuterium atoms are depicted in black, dark blue, and light blue, respectively.
