The various possible reaction channels are discussed in terms of intersections of qualitative potential energy surfaces: most of the processes discussed cannot occur on a single adiabatic surface, and transitions between surfaces are most probable in the vicinity of intersections. It is suggested ll1 that most of the quenching leads to production of three groundstate atoms ; long-range interaction between the three 2A’surfaces correlating with H* H2, and the surface H H2(b3&+)which is attractive at long range, is discussed.
