  author={Steven A. Mitchell and Peter A. Hackett},
The reactivity of ground state iron atoms with respect to atom transfer and adduct formation reactions with a variety of simple molecules in Ar buffer gas near room temperature has been investigated. Iron atoms are produced by visible multiphoton dissociation of iron pentacarbonyl or ferrocene, and their removal by added gases under pseudo‐first‐order conditions is monitored by resonance fluorescence excitation at variable time delay following the photolysis pulse. Upper limits for second‐order… CONTINUE READING
