FAR-INFRARED SPECTRA OF THE OC...HOH DIMER: OBSERVATION OF THE IN-PLANE BENDING MODE
MetadataShow full item record
Publisher:Ohio State University
Far-infrared spectra of the OC...HOH dimer have been obtained for the in-plane bending mode. Spectroscopic and computational studies confirm that this is the lowest frequency intermolecular vibrational mode for the cluster. The spectra will be discussed in terms of the intermolecular potential energy surface and how they relate to recent diffusion Monte Carlo calculations by P. Sandler and V. Buch, including differences between the ground and excited state rotational constants and tunneling splittings. Comparsion to the isoeletronic NN...HOH dimer will be made as time allows.
