Title:
The electron affinity of phenanthrene 
Abstract:
Phenanthrene is studied by photodetachment-photoelectron spectroscopy. Due to the absence of a parent ion peak in the anion mass spectrum the electron affinity could not be detd. directly. However, this absence is the first indication that this mol. has a neg. electron affinity. The first three water complexes of phenanthrene were studied, supplying insights into its microsolvation property. Moreover, the electron affinity of the bare mol. could be detd. to be -0.01±0.04 eV by an extrapolation m...    »
