Picosecond X-ray absorption measurements of the ligand substitution dynamics of Fe(CO)5 in ethanol

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ultrafast X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy has been carried out for photo excited iron pentacarbonyl in ethanol with 2 picosecond resolution. A temporal resolution limited dissociation process was observed, followed by the formation of the mono-substituted complex Fe(CO)4EtOH within a few tens of picoseconds. The measurements have been carried out with a newly developed X-ray absorption instrument at station 7 ID-C of the Advanced Photon Source. The results show that single picosecond temporal resolution can be achieved at a synchrotron beam line.
