Nonlinear Laser Chemistry of Maleic Acid
With reference to recent laser investigations of excited state reactions of maleic acid in Letokhov’s group, relevant excited state constants were determined by means of a physico-mathematical methods package of nonlinear absorption and the excited state populations were calculated for the experimental conditions. Based on this, a change of the assignment of the found reactions to excited states is suggested in the following manner: dimerization in T1 and maleic acid formation in a higher excited triplet.
