Iodine radical reactions in single free-falling microdroplets of iodododecane, initiated using UV laser photolysis, are probed using Raman spectroscopy. Stimulated Raman spectra, with 532 nm laser excitation, are recorded at varying time delays from the UV pulse. I atom recombination reactions lead to I 2 that changes the optical properties of the microdroplet ultimately quenching the Raman signal. This quenching is observed over ∼10 ns, which is about the time resolution of the two-laser experiment. Although the kinetics are too rapid to be measured in current laser configuration, it demonstrates that radical kinetics can be followed in single microdroplets. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
