Title:MICROWAVE SPECTRA, MOLECULAR GEOMETRIES AND BARRIERS TO INTERNAL ROTATION IN COMPLEXES OF Ar…C5H7N2 AND H2O…C5H7N2 (WHERE C5H7N2 IS 1-, 2-, 4- OR 5-METHYLIMIDAZOLE)

Abstract:Experiments performed to observe the broadband microwave spectra of 1-methylimidazole, 2-methylimidazole, 4-methylimidazole and 5-methylimidazole also yielded the spectra of molecular complexes containing these molecules. The complexes were generated through laser vaporisation of a solid target rod in the presence of a gas sample undergoing supersonic expansion and containing Ar and H$_2$O precursors. Spectra have thus been recorded for a series of structural isomers of Ar$\cdots$C$_{5}$H$_{7}$N$_{2}$ and H$_{2}$O$\cdots$C$_{5}$H$_{7}$N$_{2}$ where C$_{5}$H$_{7}$N$_{2}$ is an isomer of methylimidazole. Rotational constants, {\it{B}}$_{0}$, centrifugal distortion constants, {\it{D}}$_{\it{J}}$, and nuclear quadrupole coupling constants, $\chi_{aa}$(N) and $\chi_{bb}$(N)-$\chi_{cc}$(N) have been determined through assignment of the observed rotational spectra. For each of the structural isomers identified, it will be shown that the argon atom of Ar$\cdots$C$_{5}$H$_{7}$N$_{2}$ coordinates to $\pi$ electrons of the aromatic ring of methylimidazole. The water molecule in H$_{2}$O$\cdots$C$_{5}$H$_{7}$N$_{2}$ binds to the pyridinic nitrogen atom of the methylimidazole sub-unit. For each complex, the barrier to internal rotation, ${\it{V}}_3$, of the methyl group has been determined.
