Mason, J. Chem. Soc. 1963, 4531. en_US dc.description Author Institution: Titleist Foot Joy World Wide; Department of Chemistry, University of Scranton en_US dc.description.abstract We report the results of laser photolysis ($\lambda = 670, 633 nm)$ of $CF_{3}NO$ trapped in solid argon, krypton, xenon, nitrogen and oxygen. Infrared spectroscopy was used to characterize the photoproducts and monitor the progress of the photolysis. In the gas phase photolysis, the parent molecule undergoes fragmentation upon $S_{1}$ excitation and the nascent fragments react with another monomer to produce the N-nitritoamine, $(CF_{3})_{2}NONO$, previously observed by $Mason^{a}$. Our condensed phase spectra indicate the formation of a different photoproduct, an azo or azoxy compound, with no apparent presence of the nitritoamine, and traces of $CF_{3}$ and NO in only the most dilute matrices. The quantum efficiency of this reaction exhibits a dependence on the matrix:reagent ratio. This concentration dependence is consistent with a second photolytic pathway where the $S_{1}$ monomer reacts with a ground state monomer in an adjacent matrix site before fragmentation can occur. en_US dc.format.extent 112589 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE PRODUCTION AND INFRARED SPECTRUM OF A PHOTODIMER OF TRIFLUORONITROSOMETHANE $(CF_{3}NO)$ ISOLATED IN INERT GAS MATRICES en_US dc.type article en_US
