Charge-transfer mediated photochemistry in alkene–O2 complexes


The photochemistry of a series of alkene–O2 complexes was studied in a supersonic expansion using a resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization probe of the O(P j) photoproduct at 226 nm. The relative yield of oxygen atoms from each complex was correlated to the ionization potential of the alkene species and indicates that initial excitation of an… (More)
