        Photofragmentation of the lanthanum isopropylcyclopentadienyl   complex, La(iCp) was explored through time-dependent excited   state molecular dynamics (TDESMD), excited state molecular   dynamics (ESMD), and thermal molecular dynamics (MD). Simulated   mass spectra were extracted from ab initio molecular dynamics   simulations through a new and simple method and compared to   experimental photoionization time-of-flight (PI-TOF) mass   spectra. The computational results indicate that the value of   excitation energy and mechanism of excitation determine the   dissociation process.
