Evidence for concerted ring opening and C-Br bond breaking in UV-excited bromocyclopropane.
Photodissociation of gaseous bromocyclopropane via its A-band continuum has been studied at excitation wavelengths ranging from 230 nm to 267 nm. Velocity-map images of ground-state bromine atoms (Br), spin-orbit excited bromine atoms (Br*) and C3H5 hydrocarbon radicals reveal the kinetic energies of these various photofragments. Both Br and Br* atoms are predominantly generated via repulsive excited electronic states in a prompt photodissociation process in which the hydrocarbon co-fragment ...Expand abstract
