Inner Shell Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy: a new probe of Transient Species

WHO:  Laura Ennis, Adam Hitchcock, Chemistry, McMaster University
            (thanks to Jim Garrett (BIMR) for help with the furnace)
 
WHERE:  McMaster ABB-332
 
WHEN:   Jan  1999                        POSTED:  24 Jan 1999; updated 04-Dec-00, 22-aug-02

REFERENCE L.E. Ennis and A.P. Hitchcock, J. Chem. Phys. 111 (1999) 3468.
 
WHAT:  A new way to look at chemical reactions has been developed - the in situ study of  the products of a reaction by probing the vapor phase of that reaction with ISEELS - electronic spectroscopy based on promotion of electrons from inner shell to virtual valence levels. HBS is formed from reaction of H2S flowing over hot boron crystals in a quartz tube. At elevated temperature and pressures the H2S attacks the quartz, allowing formation of HBO. This is the first observation of the B 1s core excitation spectra of these unstable species.
