Electron-induced decarboxylation in condensed films of formic acid HCOOH, partially deuterated acetic acid CH3COOD and trifluoroacetic acid CF3COOH, has been studied in the energy range 0.7–20 eV by high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS). The yield of carbon dioxide formation shows a peak around 1 eV irradiation energy associated with a resonant mechanism involving the transient negative ion [RCOOH] #− and an essentially non-resonant contribution increasing with irradiation… CONTINUE READING
