Abstract

The electron-impact excitation spectra of hydrogen cyanide (HCN), acetonitrile (CH3CN), malononitrile [CH2(CN)2], propionitrile (C2H5CN), and butyronitrile (C3H7CN) have been studied experimentally at impact energies of 25, 50, and 75 eV and at scattering angles from 5° to 80°. Results for hydrogen cyanide are in excellent agreement with previous work. Previously unobserved singlet-->triplet transitions of acetonitrile, propionitrile, and butyronitrile are reported. Also, the first study of the electronic spectrum of malononitrile is reported. Tentative assignments for transitions observed are reported.
