While much detailed information has been obtained about the fragmentation of molecules following excitation or ionization of valence electrons, relatively little is known about corresponding phenomena involving core electrons. This paper reviews some recent research that we have done to learn about the chemical consequences of selective core electron excitation in molecules. Specifically, studies of nitrous oxide, acetone, and oxygen will be summarized, and a theory will be described that is directed at predicting which bonds in a polyatomic molecule rupture as a consequence of the multiple electron excitation accompanying decay of a core hole excited state.
