Abstract : Photoelectron spectroscopy is used to study in the gas phase the electronic structure of metals and metal oxides which are of importance in the upper atmosphere. Ionization energies and cross-sections at discrete wavelengths are obtained. Exothermicities of charge exchange reactions of metal oxides and dioxides of importance to atmospheric modelling calculations will be determined. Keywords: Photoelectron spectroscopy, Ionization energies, Ionic heats of formation, Charge exchange reactions.
