Paper Abstract

The gas phase photodissociation of the cyclic sulfoxides, (CH2)nSO (n equals 2, 3, 4), has been studied following 193 and 248 nm photolysis. The nascent vibrational state distribution of the SO(X3(Sigma) -) photofragment following photolysis of each cyclic sulfoxide contains detailed information about the photochemical mechanisms. The SO vibrational state distributions have been measured by laser induced fluorescence spectroscopy on the (B3(Sigma) - -- X3(Sigma) -) transition, after 193 and 248 nm photodissociation of each cyclic sulfoxide. The observed vibrational state distributions are compared with physical models to help reveal the fragmentation mechanisms.
