Excitation, ionization, and fragmentation of chiral molecules in asymmetric microenvironments: a mass-resolved R2PI spectroscopic study.

One- and two-color, mass selected R2PI spectra of the S(1) <-- S(0) transitions in the bare (R)-(+)-1-phenyl-1-propanol and its complexes with bidentate solvent molecules, like the (R)-(-)- and (S)-(+)-3-hydroxytetrahydrofuran enantiomers, have been recorded after a supersonic molecular beam expansion. The one-color R2PI excitation spectra of the… CONTINUE READING
