Abstract

Interchange and many‐body perturbation theory are applied to the calculation of the radiative lifetime of the 3B1 state of SO2. The radiative lifetime of 3B1 SO2 is predicted to be 7.6 msec, in excellent agreement with the experimental collision‐free phosphorescence lifetime. As a separate calculation, interchange perturbation theory is used to determine the radiative lifetime of the 1A1 state of CH2.
