## Description

 Title: Chirped pulse and cavity ft microwave spectroscopy of the formic acid – trimethylamine weakly bound complex Author(s): Mackenzie, Becca Contributor(s): Leopold, Ken; Dewberry, Chris Subject(s): Atmospheric science Abstract: Amine-carboxylic acid interactions are important in many biological systems and have recently received attention for their role in the formation of atmospheric aerosols. Here, we study the molecular and electronic structure of the formic acid – trimethylamine complex, using it as a model for amine-carboxylic acid interactions. The microwave spectrum of the complex has been observed using chirped pulse and conventional cavity-type Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy. The degree of proton transfer has been assessed using the $^{14}$N nuclear quadrupole hyperfine structure. Experimental results will be compared to DFT calculations.
