The reactive species, CN radicals, were produced by the irradiation of the focused laser beam on the metal cyanide target. The reaction of CN radicals with low-molecular-weight hydrocarbons gave fragmented hydrocarbons and CN (and NC) compounds, while that with hydrogen gave hydrogen cyanide. From the experimental results, it seems that the products may be formed mainly by the reaction of the reactive species with fragment hydrocarbon radicals which are produced by the collision of the high-temperature reactive species (CN*) with the parent hydrocarbons.
