Abstract : The research under this grant was aimed at several closely related objectives involving studies in chemical dynamics and chemical kinetics. In the case of chemical dynamics, both gas-phase and gas-surface molecular collisions were studied with a special emphasis on the development and application of new techniques. In particular, an average wavefunction procedure was developed especially designed for treating the scattering from complex targets. Applications were made to gas-phase scattering as well as gas-surface scattering in the presence of defects. In the latter case, the focus was on the role that natural defects or adsorbed species have with regard to their influence on the chemical and physical properties of surfaces. Keywords: Chemical dynamics; Chemical kinetics; Gas surface; Wavefunction.
