Resonances in low-energy electron scattering from para-benzoquinone

Loupas, Alexandra and Gorfinkiel, Jimena D. (2017). Resonances in low-energy electron scattering from para-benzoquinone. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 19(28) pp. 18252–18261.



We present detailed ab initio scattering calculations for electron collisions with para-benzoquinone. The R-matrix method has been used to study elastic and electronically inelastic scattering. We have identified 25 resonances of shape, Feshbach, core-excited shape and mixed character between 0 and 8 eV. Agreement of our resonance spectrum with existing literature is discussed, in particular that of the low-lying resonances that participate in the photodetachment process. Integral elastic and total inelastic cross sections are also presented.
