In science:

An examination of the motion of ionic tra jectory seen as a movie indicates that isomerization (Fig. 8(a)) is responsible for the weak peak.
The electronic structures, the equilibrium geometries and finite temperature properties of Na_n (n=39-55)
The δrms in Fig. 7(b) shows the effect of isomerization around 160 K.
The electronic structures, the equilibrium geometries and finite temperature properties of Na_n (n=39-55)
Thus it is difficult to identify a definite melting temperature. A similar behavior is also seen in that of Na52 except for the small peak seen 180 K due to isomerization (Fig. 12(c)).
The electronic structures, the equilibrium geometries and finite temperature properties of Na_n (n=39-55)
Either the transition must populate an isomeric excited state with a subsequent electromagnetic de-excitation, or the final state needs to be unstable in order to provide a coincidence tag to discriminate against background events such as ES signals and radioactive decays.

Another recent result is that the isomerization of H2CO and CH3OH, in particular the shifting of a D atom from one side of the molecule to another, appears inefficient (Osamura et al. 2004).
