A combined resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization and ab initio study of the first absorption band of 1,2,4,5-tetrafluorobenzene, pentafluorobenzene, and hexafluorobenzene.


The resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) spectra of jet-cooled penta- and hexafluorobenzene when excited in the region λ(ex) = 265-253 nm of the first absorption band and observed only in the CF(+) mass channel is dominated by rotational structure in the A←X transition of CF. However, structure in the CF(+) channel for λ(ex) > 265 nm is not a… (More)
