Nuclear spin conversion in formaldehyde

Preprint English OPEN
Chapovsky, Pavel L.;
(2000)

Theoretical model of the nuclear spin conversion in formaldehyde (H2CO) has been developed. The conversion is governed by the intramolecular spin-rotation mixing of molecular ortho and para states. The rate of conversion has been found equal 1.4*10^{-4}~1/s*Torr. Temper... View more
