ABSTRACT
The photoion yield spectrum of HOBr was measured over the wavelength range λ=108–121 nm by using a discharge flow-photoionization mass spectrometer apparatus coupled to a synchrotron radiation source. HOBr was generated by the reaction of OH with molecular bromine. A value of (10.62±0.04) eV was obtained for the adiabatic ionization energy (I.E.) of HOBr from photoion thresholds, corresponding to the HOBr+(2A‘)←HOBr(1A’) transition. The structure observed in the spectrum is discussed in terms of the available states for HOBr+, which have been determined using multiconfiguration-self-consistent field calculations. A new value for ΔH0f 298(HOBr) of -9 kcal mol-1 is derived from I.E.(HOBr) and estimates of ΔHf(HOBr+).
