Perturbed modes of the cyclopropane ring were observed for each of the complexes studied, and a reduction in symmetry was noted for the cyclopropane complexes. In addition, the H-X stretching mode in the complex appeared shifted to lower energies, by up to $200 cm^{-1}$, indicating the formation of a hydrogen bond. The magnitude of the shift and the degree of perturbation of the ring correlated with the strength of interaction and dipole moment of the acid. The spectral results are in agreement with the structure of the $HX \cdot c-C_{3}H_{6}$ complexes as determined by rotational spectroscopy in supersonic jets. The site of coordination in the methyl-substituted cyclopropane is not known, and these studies may shed additional light on the mechanism of acid-catalyzed ring openings of substituted cyclopropanes. en_US dc.format.extent 612522 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INFRARED MATRIX ISOLATION SPECTROSCOPIC STUDIES OF THE COMPLEXES OF CYCLOPROPANE AND METHYL-SUBSTITUTED CYCLOPROPANES WITH THE HYDROGEN HALIDES en_US dc.type article en_US
