Abstract.

Measurements of multiphoton ionization and dissociation of acetone are reported in the wavelength range 582.60-585.80 nm at photon energy resolution of 0.3 cm-1. To our knowledge there are not available results of (3 + 2) REMPI on acetone at 0.01 nm in this region. The experiments were performed using an Nd: YAG-OPO (optical parametric oscillator) laser system coupled to time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The ion yield and the single ion channel are presented. The high-resolution three-photon resonance multiphoton spectrum of the acetone \(3s\leftarrow n\) Rydberg transition is also reported. The experimental results show three dissociation channels of the acetone ion, leading to the products: (CH3CO + ), (CH3 + ) and (COH + ); the channel CH3COCH \(_{3}^{ + } \to \rm CH\) 3CO + + CH3 being the most favored. The acetone and acetyl ions are observed in all wavelength range investigated. In addition, we have measured the origin of the \(3s\leftarrow n\) and \(4s\leftarrow n\) transitions, and vibrational bands of the 3s state.
