Abstract:

The ionization potential of the CH32N radical, obtained by pyrolysis of 1.1.dimethylhydrazine and of dimethylnitrosamine, was determined directly as 9.42 plus or minus 0.1 eV. The heat of formation of CH32N was calculated to be 30.3 plus or minus 2 kcalmole. This figure agrees with the kinetic value thus resolving the discrepancy between the latter and previous electron impact values. Electron affinities were obtained as follows EANH2 1.05 plus or minus 0.1 eV and EANO 0.8 plus or minus 0.1 eV. Author
