New phase rules have been derived for the rotationally inelastic diffraction scattering of an atom with a nomonuclear diatomic molecule. The phase rules are obtained by applying semiclassical complex angular momentum techniques to the infinite order sudden approximation.

This paper is the fourth in a series concerned with a new approach to the theory of rotationally inelastic molecular scattering.
