The photoelectron circular dichroism (PECD) of the O 1s-photoelectrons of trifluoromethyloxirane (TFMOx) is studied experimentally and theoretically for different photoelectron kinetic energies. The experiments were performed employing circularly polarized synchrotron radiation and coincident electron and fragment ion detection using cold target recoil ion momentum spectroscopy. The corresponding calculations were performed by means of the single center method within the relaxed-core Hartree… Expand

Photoelectron circular dichroism and spectroscopy of trifluoromethyl- and methyl-oxirane: a comparative study.
The recorded PECD experimental data and corresponding continuum multiple scattering calculations for the outermost orbitals obtained at various photon energies reveal the dramatic effect of substituting the CF3 and CH3 groups attached at the asymmetric chiral center. Expand
Photoelectron circular dichroism spectroscopy in an orbitally congested system: the terpene endoborneol.
The broad featureless transitions encountered here preclude an orbital by orbital analysis of the PECD, although semiquantitative features of the highest-occupied molecular orbital PECD are identified and compared to full calculations. Expand
Determination of accurate electron chiral asymmetries in fenchone and camphor in the VUV range: sensitivity to isomerism and enantiomeric purity.
The accuracy of the data provided are such that limited departure from perfect enantiopurity in the sample the authors purchased could be detected and estimated in excellent agreement with the analysis performed in parallel via a chromatographic technique, establishing a new standard of accuracy, in the ±1% range, for enantiomeric excess measurement via PECD.

Conformational sensitivity in photoelectron circular dichroism of 3-methylcyclopentanone.
This new approach clearly shows how the PECD methodology is sensitive to conformational and structural changes of unoriented (R)-3-MCP in the gas phase, opening up new perspectives in the characterisation of chiral molecular systems. Expand
Photoelectron circular dichroism in core level ionization of randomly oriented pure enantiomers of the chiral molecule camphor.
The inner-shell photoionization of unoriented camphor molecules by circularly polarized light has been investigated from threshold to a photoelectron kinetic energy of approximately 65 eV and observations reveal a circular dichroism in the angle resolved emission with an asymmetry between forward and backward scattering.

Giant chiral asymmetry in the C 1s core level photoemission from randomly oriented fenchone enantiomers.
Thephotoelectron dichroism spectrum can be used to identify the absolute chiral configuration, and it is more effective at distinguishing the similar camphor and fenchone molecules than the corresponding core photoelectron spectrum. Expand
A valence photoelectron imaging investigation of chiral asymmetry in the photoionization of fenchone and camphor.
Comparison with analogous results previously obtained for camphor reveals striking differences in the PECD, even when the ionizing orbitals are themselves left substantially unaffected by the changes in methyl groups' substitution site. Expand
