Self-consistent heats of formation for the ethyl cation, ethyl bromide, and ethyl iodide from threshold photoelectron photoion coincidence spectroscopy.

Abstract

The dissociative photoionization onsets of Br and I loss reactions were measured for C(2)H(5)Br and C(2)H(5)I, respectively, by threshold photoelectron photoion coincidence (TPEPICO) spectroscopy to establish the heats of formation of these two basic ethyl halides. The appearance energy of ethyl cation from ethyl bromide was found to be 1074.2 +/- 0.8 kJ… (More)
