Abstract: The heterogeneous decomposition of 2-propanol in the presence of CuO powder had been induced by TEA CO_2 laser radiation. Two different reaction channels were observed. Yields and branching ratios are quite sensitive to experimental variables, such as the frequency and energy fluence of laser, the distance between the laser beam and CuO surface and the nature of buffer gas.
