Abstract:In an effort to determine the feasibility of producing hydrogen gas via H$_2$O + C$_2$H$_4$ $\rightarrow$ H$_2$ + CH$_3$CHO, cluster reactivity studies were completed between Mo$_x$O$_y$ cluster anions and H$_2$O, C$_2$H$_4$, and mixtures of both H$_2$O and C$_2$H$_4$. These studies unveiled the evolution of several chemifragmentation products. To better understand the molecular-scale interactions along these chemifragmentation pathways, the photoelectron spectra and supporting theoretical calculations were analyzed for each cluster. In this talk, spectra and computational results for a series of monometallic chemifragment cluster anions formed from reactions with C$_2$H$_4$ will be presented. The analysis indicates that experimental spectra are most consistent with $\eta$$^2$$-$acetylene complexes, however vinylidene complexes cannot be definitively ruled out for all clusters. The results of this work deepen our understanding of the side reactions which occur in this multi-reactant system.
