Prominent impurity absorptions in the infrared spectra of solid $Ne:BF_{3}$ samples at 5 K can be assigned to $BF_{2}OH$, formed by the reaction of $BF_{3}$ with water adsorbed on the walls of the deposition system. This assignment is supported by the results of experiments in which the sampling system is exposed to water enriched in deuterium and/or in oxygen-18 before the introduction of the $Ne:BF_{3}$ mixture and by ab initio calculations of the positions of the vibrational fundamentals of the various isotopically substituted $BF_{2}OH$ species. The detailed vibrational assignment and normal coordinate analysis for $BF_{2}OH$ will be presented. en_US dc.format.extent 56724 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE VIBRATIONAL SPECTRUM OF $BF_{2}OH$ TRAPPED IN SOLID NEON en_US dc.type article en_US
