Abstract

Autodetachment spectroscopy is used to investigate the dynamics of rotationally-induced electron detachment from the dipole-bound state of acetaldehyde enolate anion, CH2CHO-. Line width measurements for the deuterated enolate anion, CD2CDO-, provide information about the autodetachment mechanism. The observed line widths are compared to predictions of the rotationally adiabatic model developed by Clary. This comparison provides clues to the fundamental molecular interactions that govern autodetachment rates. © 1993 American Chemical Society.
