Title:Microwave Spectrum And Geometry Of Cf3i…ph3
Author(s):Stephens, Susanna Louise

Subject(s):Chirped pulse
Abstract:A chirped-pulse Fourier transform microwave spectrometer has been used to measure the microwave spectrum of $\mathrm{CF_{3}I \cdots PH_{3}}$ between 6.5 and 18.5 GHz. The complex was stabilised by supersonic expansion of a gas sample containing small percentages of $\mathrm{CF_{3}I}$ and $\mathrm{PH_{3}}$ in a balance of 6 bar of argon. The observed spectrum is consistent with a $C_{3\mathrm{v}}$ prolate symmetric top structure which displays evidence for internal rotation of the $\mathrm{PH_{3}}$ subunit about the principal axis. Over two hundred hyperfine transitions across eleven $J''\leftarrow J'$ transitions have been assigned to the internal rotor $A$-state allowing the rotational ($B_{0}$) and centrifugal distortion ($D_{J}$ and $D_{JK}$) constants as well as the nuclear electric quadrupole coupling constant of iodine ($\chi_{aa}$(I)) to be assigned for this state. For the $E$-state, the additional distortion terms $D_{Jm}$ and $D_{JKm}$ have been determined. The length of the halogen bond between the iodine and phosphorus atoms and the force constant of this bond have also been determined.
