1 Conformer selective and vibrationally mediated photodissociation dynamics of propanal cation Lei Shen, Myunghwa Kim, Bailin Zhang, Arthur G. Suits Department of Chemistry, Wayne State University

2 Geometric optimization of propanal cation (C 3 H 6 O + ) cis conformer (0.07 o ) gauche conformer (118.9 o ) Gauche form is more stable and energy difference is only about 65 cm -1 in the lowest ionic state with the barrier height, 344 cm -1. Cis form is more stable in both the ground and Rydberg states of neutral propanal. The geometry optimization was performed with B3LYP/ G** by Gaussian 03.
