    Photodissociation of (SO2⋯XH) Van der Waals complexes and clusters (XH = C2H2, C2H4, C2H6) excited at 32,040-32,090 cm(-1) with formation of HSO2 and X.

    We studied photodecomposition dynamics of (SO2⋯XH) Van der Waals' (VdW) complexes and clusters in gas phase, with X = C2H, C2H3, and C2H5. SO2 was excited by frequency-doubled radiation of a tunable dye laser and resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization was used to detect the C2H (m/z 25), C2H3 (m/z 27), and C2H5 (m/z 29) ions by time-of-flight mass spectroscopy. Spectra obtained at higher nozzle pressures (P0 > 2.5 atm) indicate formation of clusters. Detailed studies of the VdW complex structure were carried out by analyzing the rotational structure of the respective action spectra. We also performed ab initio theoretical analysis of structures of the VdW complexes and transitional states leading to photodecomposition. We find that the structure of the transition state is significantly different as compared to the equilibrium ground-state structure of the respective complex. The photodecomposition mechanism depends on the hydrocarbon molecule bound to SO2.

    The dynamics of photoinduced reactions between electronically excited SO(2) molecule (A (1)A(2)<--X (1)A(1)) and acetylene molecule (X (1)Sigma(g) (+)) in the SO(2)-acetylene van der Waals (vdW) complexes (clusters) was studied. The SO(2) molecule was excited by frequency-doubled radiation of a tunable dye laser, and resonance enhancement multiphoton photoionization of the produced photofragments was induced by ArF (193 nm) laser radiation or by frequency-doubled radiation of a second tunable dye laser to observe the C(2)H radical. The HOSO radical was detected by its IR emission. Read More
    The C3-bending vibrational levels of the C3-Kr and C3-Xe van der Waals complexes studied by their Ã-X̃ electronic transitions and by ab initio calculations.

    Fluorescence excitation spectra and wavelength-resolved emission spectra of the C(3)-Kr and C(3)-Xe van der Waals (vdW) complexes have been recorded near the 2(2-)(0), 2(2+)(0), 2(4-)(0), and 1(1)(0) bands of the Ã(1)Π(u)-X̃(1)Σ(g)(+) system of the C(3) molecule. In the excitation spectra, the spectral features of the two complexes are red-shifted relative to those of free C(3) by 21.9-38. Read More

    The technique of two-dimensional laser induced fluorescence (2D-LIF) spectroscopy has been used to observe the van der Waals complexes fluorobenzene-Ar and fluorobenzene-Ar(2) in the region of their S(1)-S(0) electronic origins. The 2D-LIF spectral images reveal a number of features assigned to the van der Waals vibrations in S(0) and S(1). An advantage of 2D-LIF spectroscopy is that the LIF spectrum associated with a particular species may be extracted from an image. Read More

    The ground- [NO(X(2)Π)] and excited-state [NO(A(2)Σ(+))] intermolecular potential energy surfaces (IPESs) of the NO-Ne and NO-Ar van der Waals complexes are evaluated using the RCCSD(T) spin-restricted coupled cluster method and d-aug-cc-pVQZ basis set extended with a set of 3s3p2d1f1g midbond functions. These bases are selected from the results of a systematic basis-set convergence study carried out for the NO(A(2)Σ(+))-Ar state. We fit the interaction energies to analytic functions and compare the results to those previously available. Read More
