    Abstract

    Resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) and zero electron kinetic energy (ZEKE) spectra have been obtained for the trans-formanilide. Ar (t-FA·Ar) cluster. The spectra indicate that the argon atom binds above the aromatic ring to form a C1 symmetry, van der Waals (vdW) complex. The bx, by and sz intermolecular vibrational modes are observed at 4, 10 and 18 cm-1 in the S1 state, and 8, 26 and 36 cm-1 in the D0 state. We compare the t-FA. At spectra with those of other aromatic molecule-argon complexes to probe the electronic structure of FA in the S1 and D0 states. © 2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
