Formation of H3O+ by the soft X-ray ionization of ethanol clusters
ChemPhysLett_433_43.pdf 150 KB
Time-of-flight mass spectra have been measured for inner-shell ionization of ethanol molecules, its clusters, and methanol clusters at the oxygen K-edge regions. Only in the case of the ethanol clusters, a fairly intense signal corresponding to H3O+ has been observed. The measurements for ethanol-d1 (C2H5OD) suggest that at least one H atom in the H3O+ ion originates from the C2H5 group of neighbouring ethanol. It is proposed that in addition to the O-H--OH type hydrogen bonding in the ethanol clusters, the H in the C2H5 group and OH interact with each other.
