Abstract

A statistical model was used to estimate the branching ratios in the dessociative recombination (DR) of polyatomic molecular ions. The model was based on statistical assumptions about the redistribution of energy among the dissociating nuclei and about the population of electronic potential surfaces. The vibrational state populations of molecular fragments were found to be obtained and for H3+, were in good agreement with the measurements.
