The method called the variable encounter method was applied in the oxetane decomposition system for the study of vibrational energy transfer between gas molecules and the surface. The average probability of reaction per collision was derived from the experimental data and compared with theoretical calculations based on various energy transfer probability models. The Gaussian model fits the data well. The average down stepsize was found to be 3100 cm-1 at 750 K and it decreased to 2200 cm-1 at 1100 K.
