Photodetachment Imaging Studies of the Electron Affinity of CF 3


The photoelectron spectra of the trifluoromethyl anion, CF3, at 355 and 258 nm are reported. Simulation of the partially resolved vibrational structure is used to extract the adiabatic electron affinity, AEA[CF3] ) 1.82 ( 0.05 eV. The heat of formation for the trifluoromethyl anion derived from the adiabatic electron affinity (∆Hf,298 0 [CF3] ) -153.4 ( 1.5… (More)
