Title: Infrared absorption of gaseous ClCS detected with time-resolved Fourier-transform spectroscopy

Abstract

A transient infrared absorption spectrum of gaseous ClCS was detected with a step-scan Fourier-transform spectrometer coupled with a multipass absorption cell. ClCS was produced upon irradiating a flowing mixture of Cl{sub 2}CS and N{sub 2} or CO{sub 2} with a KrF excimer laser at 248 nm. A transient band in the region of 1160-1220 cm{sup -1}, which diminished on prolonged reaction, is assigned to the C-S stretching ({nu}{sub 1}) mode of ClCS. Calculations with density-functional theory (B3P86 and B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ) predict the geometry, vibrational wave numbers, and rotational parameters of ClCS. The rotational contour of the spectrum of ClCS simulated based on predicted rotational parameters agrees satisfactorily with experimental observation; from spectral simulation, the band origin is determined to be at 1194.4 cm{sup -1}. Reaction kinetics involving ClCS, CS, and CS{sub 2} are discussed.

  • C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2} radicals were produced upon irradiation of three flowing mixtures: C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}Cl in N{sub 2}, C{sub 6}H{sub 5}Cl and SO{sub 2} in CO{sub 2}, and C{sub 6}H{sub 5}Br and SO{sub 2} in CO{sub 2}, with a KrF excimer laser at 248 nm. A step-scan Fourier-transform spectrometer coupled with a multipass absorption cell was employed to record the time-resolved infrared (IR) absorption spectra of reaction intermediates. Two transient bands with origins at 1087.7 and 1278.2 cm{sup -1} are assigned to the SO{sub 2}-symmetric and SO{sub 2}-antisymmetric stretching modes, respectively, of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}. Calculations withmore » density-functional theory (B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ and B3P86/aug-cc-pVTZ) predict the geometry and vibrational wave numbers of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2} and C{sub 6}H{sub 5}OSO. The vibrational wave numbers and IR intensities of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2} agree satisfactorily with the observed new features. Rotational contours of IR spectra of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2} simulated based on predicted molecular parameters agree satisfactorily with experimental results for both bands. The SO{sub 2}-symmetric stretching band is dominated by a- and c-type rotational structures and the SO{sub 2}-antisymmetric stretching band is dominated by a b-type rotational structure. When C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}Cl was used as a precursor of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}, C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}Cl was slowly reproduced at the expense of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}, indicating that the reaction Cl+C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2} takes place. When C{sub 6}H{sub 5}Br/SO{sub 2}/CO{sub 2} was used as a precursor of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}, features at 1186 and 1396 cm{sup -1} ascribable to C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2}Br were observed at a later period due to secondary reaction of C{sub 6}H{sub 5}SO{sub 2} with Br. Corresponding kinetics based on temporal profiles of observed IR absorption are discussed.« less
  • Upon one-photon excitation at 248 nm, gaseous CH{sub 3}C(O)SH is dissociated following three pathways with the products of (1) OCS + CH{sub 4}, (2) CH{sub 3}SH + CO, and (3) CH{sub 2}CO + H{sub 2}S that are detected using time-resolved Fourier-transform infrared emission spectroscopy. The excited state {sup 1}(n{sub O}, {pi}{sup *}{sub CO}) has a radiative lifetime of 249 {+-} 11 ns long enough to allow for Ar collisions that induce internal conversion and enhance the fragment yields. The rate constant of collision-induced internal conversion is estimated to be 1.1 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup -10} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup -1} s{sup -1}. Amongmore » the primary dissociation products, a fraction of the CH{sub 2}CO moiety may undergo further decomposition to CH{sub 2}+ CO, of which CH{sub 2} is confirmed by reaction with O{sub 2} producing CO{sub 2}, CO, OH, and H{sub 2}CO. Such a secondary decomposition was not observed previously in the Ar matrix-isolated experiments. The high-resolution spectra of CO are analyzed to determine the ro-vibrational energy deposition of 8.7 {+-} 0.7 kcal/mol, while the remaining primary products with smaller rotational constants are recognized but cannot be spectrally resolved. The CO fragment detected is mainly ascribed to the primary production. A prior distribution method is applied to predict the vibrational distribution of CO that is consistent with the experimental findings.« less
  • Application of time-resolved infrared spectroscopy has had an important impact on transition metal photochemistry. The emphasis has been on metal carbonyl and metal cyano complexes because the oscillator strengths of {anti v}(CO) and {anti v}(CN) are high, and tunable lasers are available in the relevant spectral region. Until recently, time-resolved infrared spectroscopy using Fourier transform interferometry has been limited to a time resolution of {ge}5 {mu}s. However, application of step-scan FT-IR has greatly expanded the time window. It is now possible to acquire spectra with high resolution and sensitivity on a time scale of tens of nanoseconds over the entiremore » mid-IR region. In this communication, the authors report the application of step-scan FT-IR absorbance difference time-resolved spectroscopy ({sup 2}FT-IR {Delta}A TRS) with spectra acquired on the 10 ns time scale to the study of electronic structure in the metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) excited states of two related complexes of ruthenium(II) containing only the ligands 2,2{prime}-bipyridine (bpy), 4-(carboxyethyl)-4{prime}-methyl-2,2{prime}-bipyridine (4-COOEt-4{prime}-CH{sub 3}bpy) and 4,4{prime}-(dicarboxyethyl)-2,2{prime}-bipyridine (4,4{prime}-(COOEt){sub 2}bpy). Comparison of the relative vibrational energies of the MLCT states leads to specific and significant conclusions regarding the distribution of electron density in these states.« less
  • CH{sub 2}BrOO radicals were produced upon irradiation, with an excimer laser at 248 nm, of a flowing mixture of CH{sub 2}Br{sub 2} and O{sub 2}. A step-scan Fourier-transform spectrometer coupled with a multipass absorption cell was employed to record temporally resolved infrared (IR) absorption spectra of reaction intermediates. Transient absorption with origins at 1276.1, 1088.3, 961.0, and 884.9 cm{sup −1} are assigned to ν{sub 4} (CH{sub 2}-wagging), ν{sub 6} (O–O stretching), ν{sub 7} (CH{sub 2}-rocking mixed with C–O stretching), and ν{sub 8} (C–O stretching mixed with CH{sub 2}-rocking) modes of syn-CH{sub 2}BrOO, respectively. The assignments were made according to themore » expected photochemistry and a comparison of observed vibrational wavenumbers, relative IR intensities, and rotational contours with those predicted with the B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ method. The rotational contours of ν{sub 7} and ν{sub 8} indicate that hot bands involving the torsional (ν{sub 12}) mode are also present, with transitions 7{sub 0}{sup 1}12{sub v}{sup v} and 8{sub 0}{sup 1}12{sub v}{sup v}, v = 1–10. The most intense band (ν{sub 4}) of anti-CH{sub 2}BrOO near 1277 cm{sup −1} might have a small contribution to the observed spectra. Our work provides information for directly probing gaseous CH{sub 2}BrOO with IR spectroscopy, in either the atmosphere or laboratory experiments.« less
  • An approach for detecting the vibrational spectrum of transient species is demonstrated on the vinyl radical. Photodissociation of carefully chosen precursors at selected photolysis wavelengths produce highly vibrationally excited radicals. Infrared (IR) emission from these radicals is then measured by time-resolved Fourier transform spectroscopy with nanosecond time resolution. All nine vibrational bands of the vinyl radical, generated from four different precursors, are obtained and reported here for the first time. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.
