Abstract

Vacuum ultraviolet absorption cross sections and photodissociation of CH3OH, CH3OD, CD3OH, and CD3OD were measured in a 107-220 nm spectral region using synchrotron radiation. Low-lying excited states of methanol were calculated using time-dependent density functional theory. Oscillator strengths and energies of all transitions predicted with calculations were consistent with experimental results.
