Abstract:We identify new noble-gas compounds in solid matrices using IR spectroscopy. The compounds under study belong to two types: HNgY and YNgY’ where Ng is a noble-gas atom and Y and Y’ are electronegative fragments. The experimental assignments are supported by ab initio calculations at the MP2(full) and CCSD(T) levels of theory with the def2-TZVPPD basis set. We have prepared and characterized two new HNgY compounds (noble-gas hydrides): HKrCCCl in a Kr matrix and HXeCCCl in a Xe matrix.I The synthesis of these compounds includes two steps: UV photolysis of HCCCl in a noble-gas matrix to form the H + CCCl fragments and annealing of the matrix to mobilize H atoms and to promote the H + Ng + CCCl = HNgCCCl reaction. An interesting observation in the experiments on HXeCCCl in a Xe matrix is the temperature-induced transformation of the three H–Xe stretching bands. This observation is explained by temperature-induced changes of local matrix morphology around the embedded HXeCCCl molecule. In these experiments, we have also obtained the IR spectrum of the CCCl radical, which is produced by photodecomposition of HCCCl. We have identified three new YNgY’ compounds (fluorinated noble-gas cyanides): FKrCN in a Kr matrix and FXeCN and FXeNC in a Xe matrix.II These molecule are formed by photolysis of FCN in a noble-gas matrix due to locality of this process. The amount of these molecules increases upon thermal mobilization of the F atoms in the photolyzed matrix featuring the F + Ng + CN reaction.
