Comment on “Theory of photodissociation of ozone in the Hartley continuum; effect of vibrational excitation and O(1D) atom velocity distribution” by E. Baloïtcha and G. G. Balint-Kurti, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2005, 7, 3829

Abstract

In this Comment we present quantum mechanical absorption spectra of the Hartley band originating from the four vibrationally excited levels of the ground electronic state. The calculations are performed using the diabatic B-state potential energy surface and the transition dipole moment vector constructed from the ab initio data of the title paper. The calculated spectra are multimodal (for the symmetric stretch pre-excitation) and strongly structured (for the symmetric stretch and bending pre-excitations). These results agree with the previous theoretical analysis and with the predictions of a simple model based on the reflection principle, but contradict the findings of Baloïtcha amd Balint-Kurti thus questioning the accuracy of their calculations.
