Alcoholysis of Benzotrichloride Studied by Liquid Beam - Multiphoton Ionization Technique
Chemical reactions of benzotrichloride in an alcohol solution initiated by multiphoton ionization were observed by irradiation of a tightly focused laser beam at wavelength of 274 nm. The product ions ejected from the liquid surface were analyzed by a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The mass spectra of the ions indicate that alcoholysis occurs between PhCCl<SUB>2</SUB><SUP>+</SUP> produced by multiphoton ionization and alcohol molecules, ROH, giving PhCCl(OR)<SUP>+</SUP> and PhC(OR)<SUB>2</SUB><SUP>+</SUP>.
