Hydrogen bonding in methanol clusters has been investigated by using inner-shell photoabsorption spectroscopy and density functional theory (DFT) calculations in the carbon and oxygen K-edge regions. The partial-ion-yield (PIY) curves of H(CH(3)OH)(n)(+) were measured as the soft x-ray absorption spectra of methanol clusters. The first resonance peak in the(More)
Reactions of protonated water clusters, H(H(2)O)(n) (+) (n=1-4) with D(2)O and their "mirror" reactions, D(D(2)O)(n) (+) (n=1-4) with H(2)O, are studied using guided-ion beam mass spectrometry. Absolute reaction cross sections are determined as a function of collision energy from thermal energy to over 10 eV. At low collision energies, we observe reactions(More)
Oxidation reaction of a gas-phase aluminum atom by a molecular oxygen was studied by a crossed-beam condition at 12.4 kJ/mol of collision energy. A (1+1) resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) via the D(2)Σ(+)-X(2)Σ(+) transition of AlO was applied to ionize the product. The REMPI spectrum was analyzed to determine rotational state distributions(More)
The hydrogen-bonded structures of pyrrole-solvent (H(2)O,CH(3)OH,C(2)H(5)OH) binary clusters were studied by the combination of experimental and theoretical techniques. Infrared cavity ringdown spectroscopy was applied to observe the NH and OH stretching vibrations of the clusters. The structures, binding energies, and normal modes of the binary clusters(More)
Fragmentation of doubly charged ethanol clusters [(C(2)H(5)OH)(n)] following the O 1s ionization has been investigated by means of the photoelectron-photoion-photoion coincidence (PEPIPICO) method. The dominant fission channel of (C(2)H(5)OH)(n)(2+) was the formation of protonated cluster ion pairs [H(C(2)H(5)OH)(l)(+)/H(C(2)H(5)OH)(m)(+)]. The(More)
Hydrogen bonding in acetone clusters was investigated using near-edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations in the carbon and oxygen K-edge regions. The partial-ion-yield (PIY) curves of the cluster ions were measured as the NEXAFS spectra of acetone clusters. In the carbon K-edge region, the first(More)
The IR spectra for various sizes of pyrrole clusters were measured in the NH stretching vibration region by infrared cavity ringdown spectroscopy. The hydrogen-bonded structures and normal modes of the pyrrole clusters were analyzed by a density functional theory calculation of the B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) level. Two types of pulsed nozzles, a slit and a large(More)
To investigate the π bonding electron contribution to N-H···O=C hydrogen-bond (H-bond) formation, we applied IR cavity ringdown spectroscopy to jet-cooled pyrrole-acetone (Py-Ac) binary clusters. The observed NH stretching vibrations were analyzed by density functional theory (DFT), in which the energetically optimized structures, harmonic frequencies, and(More)
Oxidation reactions of the gas-phase titanium atom in its excited state with oxygen molecule, Ti(a(5)F(J)) + O2 → TiO(A(3)Φ, B(3)Π, C(3)Δ) + O, were studied by a crossed-beam velocity map imaging technique at 14.3 kJ/mol of collision energy. Metastable excited Ti, Ti(a(5)FJ), was generated by an optical pumping method and the reaction products were detected(More)
The dynamics of the reaction, V(a 4FJ)+NO-->VO(X 4Sigma-)+N was studied by using a crossed-beam technique at 16.4 kJ/mol of collision energy. The V atomic beam was generated by laser vaporization and crossed with the O2 beam at a right angle. The laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) for the transition of VO(B 4Pi-X 4Sigma) was used to determine the rotational(More)
