Under UV light irradiation on a gaseous mixture of Fe(CO)5and Co(CO)3NO, both the crystalline deposits with sizes of ∼5 and ∼18 μm and the spherical particles with a mean diameter of 0.3 μm were produced. From FT-IR spectra and SEM-EDS analysis, it was suggested that the chemical structure of the crystalline deposits was the one of Fe2(CO)9being modified by involving Fe{single bond}(C{double bond, long}O){single bond}Co bond. By decreasing a partial pressure of Fe(CO)5to 0.5 Torr in the gaseous mixture, only the spherical aerosol particles could be produced. Chemical composition of the particles was rich in Co species. From the disappearance of bridging C{double bond, long}O band in the FT-IR spectra of the particles and the appearance of C{single bond}O bands coordinated to a metal atom, Fe atom in Fe(CO)4was suggested to be coordinated by the O atom in bridging C{double bond, long}O bond in Co{single bond}(C{double bond, long}O){single bond}Co structure and/or in α-diketone structure which was formed from two CO groups in dicobalt species. Chemical compositions of the crystalline deposits and the spherical particles were influenced differently by the application of a magnetic field. Atomic ratio of Fe to Co atom decreased in the crystalline deposits whereas it increased in the spherical particles with increasing magnetic field up to 5 T. Linearly aggregated particles (i.e., particle wires) as long as 30 μm were produced on the front side of a glass plate placed at the bottom of the irradiation cell. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
