dc.description.abstractWe have isolated the stable form of the formic acid dimer anion (HCOOH)$_{2}^{-}$, a model for electron-induced proton transfer between nucleic acid base-pairs, in the gas phase. The vibrational signatures of this species and its various isotopomers were investigated using Ar predissociation and photodetachment spectroscopies in the 600-3800 \wn\ range. We relate the experimental infrared transitions of the anion to those predicted for its calculated lowest energy structure in order to determine if a proton transfer event does in fact occur upon excess electron attachment to this simple hydrogen-bonded dimer. Additionally, we determined its vertical detachment energy (VDE), 1.8 eV, using velocity-map photoelectron imaging.en_US
