One- and two-color, mass-selected R2PI spectra of the S1 S0 transitions in the bare chiral chromophore R-(+)-1-phenyl-1-propanol (R) and its complexes with a variety of alc. solvent mols. (solv), namely methanol, ethanol, 1-propanol, 2-propanol, 1-butanol, S-(+)-2-butanol, R-(-)-2-butanol, 1-pentanol, S-(+)-2-pentanol, R-(-)-2-pentanol, and 3-pentanol, were recorded after a supersonic mol. beam expansion. Spectral anal., coupled with theor. calcns., indicate that several hydrogen-bonded [Rsolv] conformers are present in the beam. The R2PI excitation spectra of [Rsolv] are characterized by significant shifts of their band origin relative to that of bare R. The extent and direction of these spectral shifts depend on the structure and configuration of solv and are attributed to different short-range interactions in the ground and excited [Rsolv] complexes. Measurement of the binding energies of [Rsolv] in their neutral and ionic states points to a subtle balance between attractive (electrostatic and dispersive) and repulsive (steric) forces, which control the spectral features of the complexes and allow enantiomeric discrimination of chiral solv mols.
