A variety of photoelectron spectra for gas phase F3SiC2H4Si(CH3)3 molecule have been measured using monochromatized undulator radiation and a hemispherical electrostatic analyzer. Valence photoelectron spectrum shows many peaks for ionization from shallow and deep molecular orbitals in the binding energy region of 9-40 eV. A calculation of ionization energies using the outer valence Green's function method indicates energies in agreement with experimental results below 17.5 eV. Spectra for Si L-shell electron emission show chemical shifts of Si atoms induced from different chemical environments around two Si atoms and also exhibit spin-orbit splitting for 2p photoelectrons. Further photoelectron spectra for C K-shell and F K-shell are discussed in comparison with those of related molecules.
