Abstract

We investigate the role of ClO + O2 collisions in the chemistry of stratospheric ozone. Assuming nascent distributions for the ClO and O2 initial vibrational states, a detailed trajectory study shows that the thermal rate coefficient for ozone formation has Arrhenius-type behaviour over the range of temperatures of relevance at such altitudes, while the ClO and O2 product vibrational distributions emerging from non-reactive events resemble closely the nascent distributions.
