Abstract:Transition metal (M) carbides, nitrides, and oxides (MX, X = C, N, and O) are important molecules in astrophysics, catalysis, and organometallic chemistry. The measurements of the ionization energies (IEs), bond energies, and spectroscopic constants for MX/MX$^{+}$ in the gas phase by high-resolution photoelectron methods represent challenging but profitable approaches to gain fundamental understandings of the electronic structures and bonding properties of these compounds and their cations. We have developed a two-color laser excitation scheme for high-resolution pulse field ionization photoelectron (PFI-PE) measurements of MX species. By exciting the neutral MX species to a single rovibronic state using a visible laser prior to photoionization by a UV laser, we have obtained fully rotational resolved PFI-PE spectra for TiC$^{+}$, TiO$^{+}$, VCH$^{+}$, VN$^{+}$, CoC$^{+}$, ZrO$^{+}$, and NbC$^{+}$. The unambiguous rotational assignments of these spectra have provided highly accurate IE values for TiC, TiO, VCH, VN, CoC, ZrO, and NbC, and spectroscopic constants for their cations.
