Abstract: The photochemistry of weakly bound complexes has been show by a number of authors to sometimes result in anomalous product branching when compared to the product branching due to photochemistry of the uncomplexed reactants. Such anomalous product branching has been labeled cooperative chemistry. Recently, it has been observed that such cooperative chemistry can be observed even in systems where the chromophore in the complex it excited to a purely repulsive excited state. The phenomenon is illustrated by results on photochemistry of complexes of HI with acetylene. An ad-hoc model is presented to explain the results, and allow prediction of the presence or absence of cooperative chemistry. Preliminary tests of the predictions on the photochemistry of hydrogen sulfide with acetylene are reported.
