ABSTRACT
Ethylthio (C2H5S) radicals were formed on laser photolysis at 248 nm of diethyl disulfide (C2H5SSC2H5) or ethyl mercaptan (C2H5SH) in a free-jet expansion. The fluorescence excitation spectrum was recorded in the spectral region 398–432 nm. The origin lies at 23 519.6 cm-1, approximately 799 cm-1 greater than previously reported. Two main progressions with spacings near 420.5 cm-1 (C–S stretch) and 256.0 cm-1 (CCS bend) are dominant. Additional active fundamental vibrational modes of the B state are at 718.4, 862.8, 1054.6, 1158.9, and 1203.3 cm-1. Observation of hot bands enables accurate determination of four low-lying vibrational modes of the ground state at 271.9, 296.0, 478.3, and 672.4 cm-1. The dispersed fluorescence was recorded in the spectral region 415–525 nm. We identified several additional vibrational modes of the X state at 890, 957, 1075, 1257, 1290, 1470, 2950, and 3050 cm-1. Theoretical calculations at the MP2 level were performed to predict vibrational frequencies of both B and X states, and for the latter state were also with the B3-LYP density functional theory; the results agree satisfactorily with experimental observations. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
