The first vacuum ultraviolet absorption spectrum of a 1,2,4-triazole has been obtained and analyzed in detail, with assistance from both an enhanced UV photoelectron spectroscopic study and ab initio multi-reference multi-root configuration interaction procedures. For both 1H- and 1-methyl-1,2,4-triazoles, the first ionization energy bands show complex vibrational structure on the low-energy edges of otherwise unstructured bands. Detailed analysis of these bands confirms the presence of three…

The photoelectron spectra of the isomeric 1- and 2-methyltetrazoles; their equilibrium structures and vibrational analysis by ab initio calculations.

New synchrotron based studies of the photoelectron ionization spectra (PES) for the isomeric 1- and 2-methyltetrazoles show markedly higher resolution than previous reports, and suggest that a considerable overlay of the ionic states occurs for both molecules.

The electronic states of pyridine-N-oxide studied by VUV photoabsorption and ab initio configuration interaction computations.

The first vacuum-ultraviolet absorption spectrum of pyridine-N-oxide has been obtained, and has led to the identification of nearly 30 Rydberg states, including several excited valence state equilibrium structures determined by multi-configuration SCF and coupled cluster procedures.

Combined theoretical and experimental study of the valence, Rydberg and ionic states of fluorobenzene.

The results extend several earlier studies on the vibronic coupling leading to conical intersections between the X (2)B1 and A(2)A2 states, and a further trio (B, C, and D) of states, to conclude that the entire PIRI spectrum is induced by ν12 and ν14.

The ionic states of iodobenzene studied by photoionization and ab initio configuration interaction and DFT computations.

New valence electron photoelectron spectra of iodobenzene obtained using synchrotron radiation have been recorded and there is an evidence that minor distortion to CS symmetry occurs at the MCSCF level for the C state.

Gas-phase UV absorption spectra and OH-oxidation kinetics of 1H-1,2,3-triazole and pyrazole

In this work, we report the gas phase UV absorption spectra and the kinetics of the OH-oxidation of 1H-1,2,3-triazole and pyrazole. UV spectra were determined between 200 and 250 nm, at 350 ± 2 K and

Interpretation of the vacuum ultraviolet photoabsorption spectrum of iodobenzene by ab initio computations.

Theoretical studies of the UV and VUV spectra used both time-dependent density functional (TDDFT) and multi-reference multi-root doubles and singles-configuration interaction methods and the theoretical adiabatic excitation energies, and their corresponding vibrational profiles, gave a satisfactory interpretation of the experimental results.

Three ligands were synthesized from the reactions of isopropylidene diethyl malonate or diethyl malonate hydrazides to form two heterocyclic rings of 1,2,4-triazoles [L1,

Investigation of the Substituent Effects of the Azide Functional Group Using the Gas-Phase Acidities of 3- and 4-Azidophenols.

The electronic effect of the azide functional group on an aromatic system has been investigated using Hammett-Taft parameters obtained from the effect of azide substitution on the gas-phase acidity of phenol, demonstrating that azide acts as an inductively withdrawing group but has negligible resonance contribution on the phenol.

Photoelectron spectroscopy and electronic structure calculations of d1 vanadocene compounds with chelated dithiolate ligands: implications for pyranopterin Mo/W enzymes.

A "dithiolate-folding effect" that involves an interaction between the vanadium d orbitals and sulfur p orbitals is shown to stabilize the d1 metal center, allowing the d0, d1, and d2 electronic configurations of the metal center that are analogues for the metal oxidation states present throughout the catalytic cycle of these enzymes.
