Abstract:Acetylenic carbenes and conjugated carbon chain molecules of the HC$_{emph{n}}$H family are relevant to the study of combustion and chemistry in the interstellar medium (ISM). Propynylidene (HC$_{3}$H) has been thoroughly studied and its structure and photochemistry determined.footnote{Seburg, R. A.; Patterson, E. V.; McMahon, R. J., Structure of Triplet Propynylidene (HCCCH) as Probed by IR, UV/vis, and EPR Spectroscopy of Isotopomers. Journal of the American Chemical Society 2009, 131 (26), 9442-9455.} Here, we produce triplet diradical 1,3-dimethylpropynylidene (MeC$_{3}$Me) photochemically from a precursor diazo compound in a cryogenic matrix (N$_{2}$ or Ar) at 10 K, and spectroscopic analysis is carried out. The infrared, electronic absorption, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectra were examined in light of the parent (HC$_{3}$H) system to ascertain the effect of alkyl substituents on delocalized carbon chains of this type. Computational analysis, EPR, and infrared analysis indicate a triplet ground state with a quasilinear structure. Infrared experiments reveal photochemical reaction to penten-3-yne upon UV irradiation. Further experimental and computational results pertaining to the structure and photochemistry will be presented.
