Abstract

Abstract The results of a photoelectron study using ultraviolet 40.81 eV photons (UPS) of the outermost bands of the molecular solids NH 3 and H 2O are reported. The binding energies, the energy separation, the band widths and the branching ratio of the two outermost bands of solid NH 3 are found not to be significantly different from the 3a l and 1e molecular orbital states of the gaseous NH 3 UPS spectrum. This implies that hydrogen bonding has not produced any significant change in the electronic structure of the valence bands of solid NH 3. Because of a much smaller intermolecular hydrogen bond length in solid H 2O compared to that in solid NH 3, the hydrogen bond does, however, produce a significant change in the valence bands of H 2O on solidification, and because of the orbital geometry it predominantly affects the 3a l molecular orbital state.
