Table 1 Processes and relevant kinetics parameters used in the calculation of the contributions of OH(v = 9) + O multiquantum vibrational relaxation to the O2 AB emission.

When a kinetics data compilation is available, that reference is shown for the sake of brevity. Additional details are provided in Methods.

*The parameters f and g can be used to estimate the rate constant uncertainty from the expression: (T) = (298 K) × exp{abs[g × (1/T − 1/298)]}. The calculated uncertainty corresponds approximately to 1 SD (31).
