The reactions of electronically excited N2(A3Σu+) molecules with selected small molecules have been studied in a discharge-flow system. A method is described for probing, with high sensitivity, the dependence of total quenching rate constants and reaction pathways on vibrational energy in the N2(A) state. Highly characteristic behavior is observed in the reactions with NH3, CH3OH, NO and O2.
