Infrared absorption of C6H5SO2 detected with time-resolved Fourier-transform spectroscopy.
ABSTRACT C6H5SO2 radicals were produced upon irradiation of three flowing mixtures: C6H5SO2Cl in N2, C6H5Cl and SO2 in CO2, and C6H5Br and SO2 in CO2, with a KrF excimer laser at 248 nm. A step-scan Fourier-transform spectrometer coupled with a multipass absorption cell was employed to record the time-resolved infrared (IR) absorption spectra of reaction intermediates. Two transient bands with origins at 1087.7 and 1278.2 cm-1 are assigned to the SO2-symmetric and SO2-antisymmetric stretching modes, respectively, of C6H5SO2. Calculations with density-functional theory (B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ and B3P86/aug-cc-pVTZ) predict the geometry and vibrational wave numbers of C6H5SO2 and C6H5OSO. The vibrational wave numbers and IR intensities of C6H5SO2 agree satisfactorily with the observed new features. Rotational contours of IR spectra of C6H5SO2 simulated based on predicted molecular parameters agree satisfactorily with experimental results for both bands. The SO2-symmetric stretching band is dominated by a- and c-type rotational structures and the SO2-antisymmetric stretching band is dominated by a b-type rotational structure. When C6H5SO2Cl was used as a precursor of C6H5SO2, C6H5SO2Cl was slowly reproduced at the expense of C6H5SO2, indicating that the reaction Cl+C6H5SO2 takes place. When C6H5Br/SO2/CO2 was used as a precursor of C6H5SO2, features at 1186 and 1396 cm-1 ascribable to C6H5SO2Br were observed at a later period due to secondary reaction of C6H5SO2 with Br. Corresponding kinetics based on temporal profiles of observed IR absorption are discussed.

ABSTRACT: Langreth and Mehl (LM) and co-workers have developed a useful spin-density functional for the correlation energy of an electronic system. Here the LM functional is improved in two ways: (1) The natural separation between exchange and correlation is made, so that the density-gradient expansion of each is recovered in the slowly varying limit. (2) Uniform-gas and inhomogeneity effects beyond the randomphase approximation are built in. Numerical results for atoms, positive ions, and surfaces are close to the exact correlation energies, with major improvements over the original LM approximation for the ions and surfaces.Physical review.

ABSTRACT: ClSO was produced as an intermediate upon irradiating a flowing mixture of Cl2SO and Ar with a KrF excimer laser at 248 nm. A step-scan Fourier-transform infrared spectrometer coupled with a small multipass absorption cell was employed to detect time-resolved absorption spectrum of ClSO. A transient spectrum in the region 1120-1200 cm(-1), which diminished on prolonged reaction, is assigned to the S-O stretching (nu1) mode of ClSO. A spectrum with a resolution of 0.3 cm(-1) partially reveals rotational structure with the Q-branch at 1162.9 cm(-1). Calculations with density-functional theory (B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ) predict the geometry, vibrational, and rotational parameters of ClSO. An IR absorption spectrum of ClSO simulated based on predicted rotational parameters agrees satisfactorily with experimental results. ClSO produced from photolysis of Cl2SO at 248 nm is internally hot.The Journal of Chemical Physics 03/2004; 120(7):3179-84. · 3.16 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: A step-scan Fourier-transform spectrometer coupled with a 6.4 m multipass absorption cell was employed to detect time-resolved infrared absorption spectra of the reaction intermediate CH3SO2 radical, produced upon irradiation of a flowing gaseous mixture of CH3I and SO2 in CO2 at 248 nm. Two transient bands with origins at 1280 and 1076 cm(-1) were observed and are assigned to the SO2-antisymmetric and SO2-symmetric stretching modes of CH3SO2, respectively. Calculations with density-functional theory (B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ and B3P86/aug-cc-pVTZ) predicted the geometry, vibrational, and rotational parameters of CH3SO2 and CH3OSO. Based on predicted rotational parameters, the simulated absorption band of the SO2-antisymmetric stretching mode that is dominated by the b-type rotational structure agrees satisfactorily with experimental results. In addition, a band near 1159 cm(-1) observed at a later period is tentatively attributed to CH3SO2I. The reaction kinetics of CH3 + SO2 --> CH3SO2 and CH3SO2 + I --> CH3SO2I based on the rise and decay of absorption bands of CH3SO2 and CH3SO2I agree satisfactorily with previous reports.The Journal of Chemical Physics 07/2006; 124(24):244301. · 3.16 Impact Factor
