Title:Molecular Structure Of The Phenyl Radical (c6h5)

Subject(s):Structure determination
Abstract:Phenyl (C$_6$H$_5$) is the prototypical aryl radical, and is thought to be a critical intermediate for soot formation in combustion environments and a precursor to the formation of PAHs in space. Despite the fundamental importance of this species, its molecular structure has never been measured experimentally. We have measured the rotational spectra of C$_6$H$_5$ and all of its singly-substituted D and $^{13}$C isotopologues in the 170--190 and 250--270 GHz bands in a positive column discharge of dilute benzene (or C$_6$H$_5$D/$^{13}$CC$_5$H$_6$) in Ar. The experimentally determined rotational constants were combined with zero point vibrational and electronic corrections calculated at the CCSD(T) level of theory to derive the semi-experimental equilibrium structure ($r_e^{emp}$).
