Dimethyl- and ethyl-substituted Criegee intermediates, (CH3)2COO and CH3CH2CHOO, are photolytically generated from diiodo precursors, detected by VUV photoionization at 118 nm, and spectroscopically characterized via UV-induced depletion of the m/z = 74 signals under jet-cooled conditions. In each case, UV excitation resonant with the B–X transition results in significant ground-state depletion, reflecting the large absorption cross section and rapid dynamics in the excited B state. The broad UV absorption spectra of both (CH3)2COO and CH3CH2CHOO peak at ∼320 nm with absorption cross sections approaching ∼4 × 10–17 cm2 molec–1. The UV absorption spectra for (CH3)2COO and CH3CH2CHOO are similar to that reported previously for syn-CH3CHOO, suggesting analogous intramolecular interactions between the α-H and terminal O of the COO groups. Hydroxyl radical products generated concurrently with the Criegee intermediates are detected by 1 + 1′ resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization. The OH signals, scaled relative to those for the Criegee intermediates, are compared with prior studies of OH yield from alkene ozonolysis. The stationary points along the reaction coordinates from the alkyl-substituted Criegee intermediates to vinyl hydroperoxides and OH products are also computed to provide insight on the OH yields.
