The dynamics of $I^*(^2P_{1/2})$ production in a series of n-alkyl iodides at 222 nm have been investigated. Data are analyzed using a simple classical impulsive model. At this excitation wavelength, $I(^2P_{3/2})$ originates from a curve-crossing between the $^3Q_0$ and $^1Q_1$ surfaces and the probability of crossing for all the iodides has been derived. Since the $I^*$ quantum yield is found to decrease, the probability of crossing increases as a function of the alkyl radical size, which is also consistent with the classical model.
