Abstract

The electron energy-loss spectra of Cr(CO)6, Mo(CO)6, and W(CO)6 were measured at impact energies of 25, 50, and 100 eV and at scattering angles from 0° to 90°. The differential cross sections (DCS's) were obtained for several features in the 3–7 eV energy-loss region. The symmetry-forbidden nature of the 1A1g → 1A1g,2t2g(π) → 3t2g(π*) transition in these compounds was confirmed. Several low energy excitations were assigned to ligand field transitions on the basis of the energy and angular behavior of their associated DCS's. No transitions which could clearly be assigned to singlet → triplet excitations involving metal orbitals were located in these molecules. In addition, a number of states lying above the first ionization potential were observed for the first time. Several of these excitations seem to correspond quite well to some of the transitions observed in free CO.
