Our most recent paper published in Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. explores the photochemistry of chlorodiiodomethane (CHI2Cl), a precursor of chlorinated Criegee intermediates. Velocity map ion imaging experiments and high-level ab initio calculations were employed to characterize the photodissociation dynamics of CHI2Cl over a range of wavelengths. We further used transient absorption spectroscopy to measure the UV absorption spectrum of a chlorinated Criegee intermediate, ClCHOO, produced from the reaction of CHICl with O2.
