Title : The Quantum and Chemistry

Abstract :

We distinguish between quantum laws and quantum theories.  With
prototypical systems a canonical linear harmonic oscillator and a hydrogen
atom, we illustrate the application of a few methods to calculate the
properties of these systems, emphasizing the applicability of mathematical
software.

Title : Photochemistry of Methane at 3 K

Abstract

We have subjected pure solid methane and methane dispersed in solid
neon, all at 3 K, to irradiation from a synchrotron in the wave length
range 120 -  165 nm, and recorded the infrared spectrum of the products
as a function of wave length of irradiation, molar fraction of methane
in neon and cumulative duration of photolysis.  Some thirty products
are identified, including such free radicals as CHn, 1 <= n <= 5, and
carbon chains up to C20.  The mechanism of the reactions is discussed.
