Decomposition of Bis(acetylacetonate)zinc(II) by Slow Electrons

Abstract

The production of zinc-containing nanostructures has a large variety of applications. Using electron beam techniques to degrade organometallic molecules for that purpose is perhaps one of the most versatile methods. In this work, we investigate the scattering of low-energy (<12 eV) electrons with bis(acetylacetonate)zinc(II) molecules. We show that core excited and high-lying shape resonances are mainly responsible for the production of the precursor anions as well as the ligand negative fragments, which are observed exclusively at electron energies of >3 eV. The mechanisms for electron capture and then molecular dissociation are discussed in terms of density functional theory studies.
