C...H...N HYDROGEN BOND FORMATION IN TRIMETHYLAMINE DIMER UPON ONE-PHOTON IONIZATION
MetadataShow full item record
Publisher:Ohio State University
Structures of trimethylamine dimer cluster cations which are generated by the vacuum-ultraviolet photoionization are investigated by a combination of infrared spectroscopic methods and theoretical reaction-pass calculations. In the trimethylamine dimer cluster cation, a proton of a methyl group is shared with the N atom of the other trimethylamine moiety. This is evidence that the methyl group acts as a proton donor in the cation state.
