Photoelectron spectroscopy of isomeric C3H2 and C3H3 molecules, produced by flash pyrolysis in a supersonic jet nozzle, is used to test a valence-bond picture for radical bond strengths and carbene singlet-triplet gaps. The good agreement suggests that ionization potential measurements can be used to determine these hard-to-obtain numbers.
