Summary of "Quantifying the photoionization cross section of the hydroxyl radical."

The hydroxyl free radical, OH, is one of the most important radicals in atmospheric and interstellar chemistry, and its cation plays a role in the reactions leading to HO formation. Knowledge of the photoionization efficiency of the OH radical is crucial to properly model the water photochemical cycle of atmospheres and astrophysical objects. Using a gas-phase radical source based on a single H-abstraction reaction combined with a photoelectron/photoion imaging coincidence spectrometer coupled with synchrotron radiation, we recorded the OH photoion yield over the 12.6-15 eV energy range, and we set it to an absolute cross section scale using an absolute point measurement performed at 13.8 e
σ=9.0±2.7 Mb. The resulting cross section values differ by approximately a factor 2 from the recent measurement of Dodson et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 148, 184302 (2018)] performed with a different radical source, which is somewhat greater than the combined uncertainties of the measurements. This finding underlines the need for further investigations of this cross section.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The univalent radical OH. Hydroxyl radical is a potent oxidizing agent.

Large and highly vacuolated cells possessing many chloroplasts occuring in the interior cross-section of leaves, juxtaposed between the epidermal layers.

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.
