Abstract:Insight gained from examining the “pure” torsional, vibrational and vibration-torsional (vibtor) levels of the single rotor molecules: toluene (methylbenzene)footnote{J. R. Gascooke, E. A. Virgo, and W. D. Lawrance, textit{J. Chem. Phys.}, textbf{143}, 044313 (2015).} and textit{para}-fluorotoluene (textit{p}FT),footnote{A. M. Gardner, W. D. Tuttle, L. Whalley, A. Claydon, J. H. Carter and T. G. Wright, textit{J. Chem. Phys.}, textbf{145}, 124307 (2016).} is applied to the double rotor textit{para}-xylene (textit{p}-dimethylbenzene) molecule .footnote{A. M. Gardner, W. D. Tuttle, P. Groner and T. G. Wright, textit{J. Chem. Phys.}, (2017, in press).} Resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) spectroscopy and zero-kinetic-energy (ZEKE) spectroscopy are employed in order to investigate the S$_{1}$ and ground cationic states of para-xylene. Observed transitions are assigned in the full molecular symmetry group (G$_{72}$) for the first time.
