Abstract

We report electron impact total cross sections for tetrahydrofuran (C4H8O) from ionization threshold to 5 keV. We have employed Spherical Complex Optical Potential (SCOP) to calculate total cross sections Q T , total inelastic cross sections Q inel and total elastic cross sections Q el and have used Complex Scattering Potential – ionization contribution (CSP-ic) formalisms to compute total ionization cross sections Q ion and summed total excitation cross sections ∑ Q exc . We have compared our cross sections with available experimental as well as theoretical results and have found good agreement wherever available. This is the maiden attempt to report the total excitation cross sections for this target.
