 Title: VIBRATIONAL AND ELECTRONIC SPECTRA OF THE PRODUCTS OF THE H + HCN REACTION TRAPPED IN SOLID ARGON$^{1}$ Creators: Jacox, Marilyn E. Issue Date: 1987 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: When H atoms produced by photolysis or by a microwave discharge react with HCN and the products are trapped in solid argon at 14 K, several infrared absorptions attributable to species of formula $CH2N$ appear, as do prominent absorptions of HNC. Filtered mercury-arc photolysis studies have established two different photodecomposition thresholds for the $CH_{2}N$ species, and isotopic substituion studies are consistent with the identification of $H_{2}CN$ and with the presence of at least one of the HCNH rotamers. Ultraviolet absorption studies have confirmed the previous assigment of several diffuse bands to $H_{2}CN$ and have extended the band system for this species to higher frequencies.
