Probing Rotational Motion in 4-tert-Butylcatechol through H Atom Photofragmentation: Deviations from Axial Recoil.


The time-resolved photofragmentation dynamics of 4-tert-butylcatechol were studied following one photon excitation to the S1 (1(1)ππ*) state with ultraviolet radiation in the range 260 ≤ λ ≤ 286 nm. The preparation of an aligned molecular ensemble via photoexcitation leads to anisotropy in the H atom photofragments. These H atoms originate from the decay of… (More)
