The electronic structure of TEMPO (2,2,6,6-Tetramethylpiperidine-N-oxyl) and its cation and anion were studied experimentally using the electron spectroscopy techniques, dissociative electron attachment (DEA) spectroscopy, electron energy-loss spectroscopy, measurement of elastic and vibrational excitation (VE) cross sections and HeI photoelectron spectroscopy. The experiments were supplemented...

Absolute partial cross sections for the formation of CN⁻ in dissociative electron attachment to HCN and DCN have been measured using a time-of-flight ion spectrometer combined with a trochoidal electron monochromator to be 940pm² for CN⁻/HCN and 340pm² for CN⁻/DCN at peaks of the bands due to the ²Π-shape resonance. The dissociative electron attachment bands were then recorded under...
