Comments:   Photofragment translational spectroscopy was used to characterize the photodissociation of acetyl chloride excited at 193 nm. G3//B3LYP calculations of the heats of reaction and barrierheights for the observed reaction channel were also carried out. TOF measurements show that all of the nascent CH2CHCO radicals have at least 23 kcal/mol internal energy and all undergo dissociation. The authors conclude that there is an upper limit of (23 +/- 3) kcal/mol for the zero-point-corrected barrier to the unimolecular dissociation of the CH2CHCO radical to form CH2CH + CO..
