Reactions of vibrationally state-selected ND3 with phenol were studied in a guided beam
arrangement. There are four exoergic channels, of which only charge transfer CT has significant
intensity. The dominant mechanism requires intimate collisions, with little long-range electron
hopping. Despite the presence of deep hydrogen-bonded wells, only a few percent of collisions form
long-lived complexes. ND3 vibration has no effect on CT at low energies, with weak inhibition at
high energies. Charge transfer with H/D exchange is a minor channel, inhibited by ND3 vibration
and collision energy. The small vibrational effects are in contrast to the large effects observed in
reaction of PhOH ( 6a , 12) with ND3 . 2000 American Institute of Physics.
