## Description

 Title: The X2bo And X2bs (x = Hydrogen Or Halogen) Free Radicals Author(s): Clouthier, Dennis Contributor(s): Sheridan, Phillip; Jin, Bing; Grimminger, Robert Subject(s): Radicals Abstract: The electronic spectra of the X$_{2}$BO and X$_{2}$BS free radicals have been studied by a combination of experimental and theoretical techniques. Experimentally, we have succeeded in preparing some of these species in a pulsed discharge jet and detecting them by laser-induced fluorescence and emission spectroscopy through the $\tilde{B} ^2{A}_{1}-\tilde{X}^2{B}_{2}$ transition. The radicals exhibit emission transitions down to the ground state and the low-lying $\tilde{A} ^2{B}_{1}$ electronic state. We have also used high level \textit{ab initio} theory [CCSD(T)/aug-cc-pV5Z] to calculate the properties of the ground and excited states and simulate the observed spectra. Experiment and theory agree that the radicals are planar, \textit{C}$_{2\textit{v}}$ symmetry species in all the three combining states, with only small changes in geometry on electronic excitation.
