Abstract:

The PbF Aomega 12 -X to the 2nd power band system has been vibrationally reanalysed, based on the observation of 69 new bandheads. The singlet-triplet splitting in methylene CH2 has been estimated to be 8.1 plus or minus 0.8 kcalmole, based on the detection of CH2 1-A1 following the photolysis of ketene CH2CO. The band energies of BaI, SF6, and SF4 have been determined to be 72.9 plus or minus 2, 91.1 plus or minus 3.2, and 84.1 plus or minus 3.0 kcalmole, based on the appearance of chemiluminescent reactions with metastable alkaline earth atoms. The two C10H8 isomers, azulene and naphthalene, have been distinguished in a mass spectrometer through the use of laser-controlled multiphoton ionization. Author
