Abstract

The electronic state spectroscopy of vinyl chloride, C2H3Cl, has been investigated by high resolution VUV photo-absorption spectroscopy in the wavelength range 115–300 nm (10.8–4.2 eV). New assignments are proposed for Rydberg series converging to the four lowest ionisation energies and their associated vibrational excitation is observed for the first time. Absolute cross-section values have been obtained allowing photolysis lifetimes to be derived in the Earth’s troposphere and stratosphere.
