Title: Reactions of Fluorine and Chlorine Atoms with Water and the Water Dimer
The ubiquitousness of water on our planet makes the study of many of its elementary chemical reactions of fundamental importance, or even of applied importance for atmospheric and combustion chemistry. This lecture will be concerned with some of the simplest reactions of water and the water dimer. Seemingly similar reactions with halogen atoms turn out to have very different energy landscapes and dynamics.
