Dissociation dynamics of thiolactic acid at 193 nm: detection of the nascent OH product by laser-induced fluorescence.


Electronically excited thiolactic acid (2-mercaptopropionic acid), H(3)C-CH(SH)-COOH, undergoes the C-OH bond cleavage on excitation to the S(2) state at 193 nm, generating the primary product OH (v,J), which is detected by laser-induced fluorescence technique in a collisionless condition of flow system. The partitioning of the available energy between… (More)
