Abstract : The photodissociation of acetone at 266.2 nm has been investigated by photofragment spectroscopy. Both the flight time distributions and the masses of the fragments are measured, leading to a determination of the energy partitioning in the photodissociation process. The angular distribution of fragments with respect to the polarization direction of the laser beam was found. Both statistical and impulsive dissociation models can fit the observed average energy partitioning. (Modified author abstract)
