TRIFLUOROACETIC ACID---NATURE OF ASSOCIATION IN DILUTE SOLUTIONS IN NON-POLAR SOLVENTS
MetadataShow full item record
Publisher:Ohio State University
Many studies on monocarboxylic acids in non-polar solvents assume that cyclic dimerization is the major association process and that all monocarboxylie acids behave similarly. A detailed study of the hydroxyl and carbonyl stretching regions of trifluoroacetic acid in suitable non-polar solvents provided direct evidence for substantial linear dimerization. The similarities and differences in the association process of trifluoroacetic and acetic acids will be discussed.
