Investigations Of Electron Attachment To Nitro‐Compounds Towards Explosives
- Conference date: 27–31 October 2008
- Location: Beijing (China)
Electron attachment to gas phase nitrobenzene, all three isomers of mononitrotoluene and 2,4,6‐trinitrotoluene is studied by means of two crossed electron‐molecular beam experiments. We point out the formation of long‐lived metastable parent anions and the most abundant anions produced via dissociative electron attachment (DEA). The experimental results are supported by quantum‐chemical calculations, to determine the electronic configuration of selected molecular orbitals or the electrostatic potential mapped on an isosurface of the total electron density to find preferential sites of electron attachment.
