The vibronic emission spectra recorded with a long-path monochromator exhibit the electronic transition energy in the D$_1$ $\rightarrow$ D$_0$ transition and vibrational mode frequencies at the D$_0$ state. In this laboratory, all six isomeric dichlorobenzyl radicals nderline{\textbf{550}}, 58 (2012).} nderline{\textbf{412}}, 88 (2005).} have been produced from the corona discharge of corresponding dichlorotoluenes seeded in a large amount of inert carrier gas He. The vibronic emission spectra show very weak intensity due to the existence of Cl atoms in the precursor molecules and possible breakdown of benzene ring by free Cl atoms. Nevertheless, we clearly identified the origin band and a few well-known vibrational modes for each isomer. From an analysis of the spectra observed, we determined the energy of electronic transition and several vibrational modes in the ground electronic state. Also, the red-shift of the origin band from the parental benzyl radical clearly shows the substituent effect of Cl atoms on electronic energy, for which we satisfactorily explain in terms of the shape of the molecular planes and position of the nodal points at a given electronic state, recently developed in this laboratory for identification of isomeric multi-substituted benzyl-type radicals. en_US dc.language.iso en en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title SPECTROSCOPY OF BENZYL-TYPE RADICALS GENERATED BY ELECTRIC DISCHARGE : JET-COOLED DICHLOROBENZYL RADICALS en_US dc.type Article en_US dc.type Image en_US dc.type Presentation en_US
