Abstract : The dependences of the nonreactive scattering of potassium atoms at thermal energies from SF6, CCl4, and SnCl4 on internal energy of the molecules and initial relative kinetic energy are studied as a function of scattering angle. The angular dependence of the nonreactive cross sections was analyzed with an optical model of chemical reactions to obtain information about potential parameters in an assumed form of two-body interaction, the threshold conditions for reaction, the probability of reaction as a function of the distance of closest approach and internal energy, as well as an estimate of the total reaction cross section.
