An argon matrix containing C2H4 and H 2O2 was irradiated at 12 K with the 248 nm emission of a KrF excimer laser; IR spectra were recorded after various periods of photolysis. In addition to lines ascribed to ethylene oxide, acetaldehyde, and vinyl alcohol, absorptions at 2991.0, 2842.7, 1355.4, 1172.5, and 1040.1 cm -1 have been assigned to HOCH2CH2; weaker lines at 3625.8, 2922.4, and 873.9 cm-1 may also be due to HOCH 2CH2. Corresponding lines at 2970.6, 2829.3, 1346.5, 1171.3, and 1020.5 (and probably 3625.8, 2915.1, and 860.7) cm-1 were observed for HO13CH2 13CH2. The results are consistent with ab initio calculations.
