A theoretical study on UV-spectroscopy, electronic structure and reactivity properties of sesquiterpenes
Abstract. Sesquiterpenes, a class of biogenic volatile organic compounds, are important precursors to secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) in nature. Using density functional theory (DFT), conceptualExpand

The sensitivity of benzene cluster cation chemical ionization mass spectrometry to select biogenic terpenes
Abstract. Benzene cluster cations are a sensitive and selective reagent ion for chemical ionization of select biogenic volatile organic compounds. We have previously reported the sensitivity of aExpand
MS/MS studies on the selective on-line detection of sesquiterpenes using a Flowing Afterglow–Tandem Mass Spectrometer (FA-TMS)
Abstract. A Flowing Afterglow-Tandem Mass Spectrometer (FA-TMS) was used to investigate the feasibility of selective on-line detection of a series of seven sesquiterpenes (SQTs). These SQTs wereExpand
UV-spectroscopy, electronic structure and ozonolytic reactivity of sesquiterpenes: a theoretical study
The electronic structure of sesquiterpenes and their reactivity in the ozonolysis reaction were investigated by density functional theory and showed that the first peaks in the ultraviolet (UV) spectra for saturated and unsaturated isomers are σ–σ* and π–π* transitions, respectively. Expand
Photoelectron spectroscopy of terpenoids and prediction of their rate constants in atmospheric oxidation reactions
The electronic structures of six mono-terpenoids and two of their oxygenated derivatives were studied by He I photoelectron spectroscopy (PES). The observed bands were interpreted on the basis ofExpand
Calculated ionization energies for a series of sesquiterpenes: comparisons with experimental vertical ionization energies and comments on related structure–activity relationships (SARs)
The energies of the highest-occupied molecular orbitals (HOMOs) are known to be excellent predictors of the reactivities of biogenic hydrocarbons, such as terpenes, with reactive atmospheric oxidantsExpand
