Bromine atoms formed by the systems 76Kr→76Br and 77Kr→ 77Br were allowed to react with simple hydrocarbons in the solid phase at 77 K and the products of the reactions studied. The product distributions for the two systems varied greatly, and these variations are discussed in terms of the charge and kinetic energy of the two recoiling bromine species. It is concluded that the product differences are due to altered radical environments arising from charge neutralization for 76Br and recoil energy dissipation for 77Br.
