Hansen, Christopher S., Ultraviolet photodissociation of protonated pyridine derivatives: action spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, Doctor of Philosophy thesis, School of Chemistry, University of Wollongong, 2016. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/4665
This thesis describes the development and benchmarking of photodissociation action spectroscopy instrumentation bringing together a commercial linear ion trap mass spectrometer and multiple pulsed laser systems. The focus of the thesis is then a study of the spectroscopy and photochemistry of gas-phase protonated pyridine derivatives using this instrumentation.
