Title:INFRARED SPECTRUM OF THE CYCLOBUTYL RADICAL IN He DROPLETS

Abstract:Gas phase cyclobutyl radical (C$_{4}$H$_{7}$) is produced via pyrolysis of cyclobutyl methyl nitrite (C$_{4}$H$_{7}$(CH$_{2}$)ONO). The nascent radicals are promptly solvated in liquid He droplets, allowing for the acquisition of the infrared spectrum in the CH stretching region. Anharmonic frequencies are predicted by VPT2+K simulations based upon a CCSD(T)/ANO0 force field. Several resonance polyads emerge in the 2800-3000 wn region as a result of anharmonic coupling between the CH stretching fundamentals and CH$_{2}$ bend overtones and combinations. Evidence of rotational fine structure is observed for two bands. The vibrationally averaged cyclobutyl radical geometry and the chem{C_4H_7} potential energy surface will be discussed. In agreement with the findings by Schultz$^{1}$ and coworkers, 1,3-butadiene is formed from cyclobutyl ring opening and H atom loss, given a sufficiently high pyrolysis temperature. However, signatures of 1-methylallyl and allylcarbinyl radicals, proposed$^{1}$ as intermediates along the above mentioned reaction path, are yet to be seen._x000d_ _x000d_ _x000d_ _x000d_ _x000d_ _x000d_ 1.
