Quenching of CS A1Π(ν = 0) by O3 P is enhanced by perturbations due to á 3Σ+(ν = 10) and d3 Δ (ν = 4) The rotational-state dependence is linear in the singlet-triplet mixing coefficients and indicates an orientation-dependent interaction Symmetry correlations suggest that the perturbations promote formation of an attractive collision complex with quenching by intersystem crossing or chemical reaction.
