dc.description.abstractRaman spectra have been obtained photographically at several temperatures between $-100^{\circ}$ and $0^{\circ} C$ for numerous values of the HCl-dimethyl ether ratio. The results are complicated but the spectra in the region of the dimethyl ether skeletal modes (below $1600 cm^{-1}$) can be interpreted satisfactorily as arising from three distinct molecular species, each having an optimum temperature-composition range of stability in the liquid. Additional information obtained by the substitution for DCl or HBr for HCl leads to the following conclusions. Species I contains HCl and dimethyl ether in a 1:1 ratio and can properly be termed a hydrogen bonded complex with the proton primarily associated with the chlorine atom. Less definite conclusions can be drawn regarding the nature of species II and III. However they are less stable, appear to involve two or four molecules of HCl per molecule of ether, respectively, and differ from species I in that at least one proton is associated primarily with the oxygen atom causing a marked change in the vibrational modes of motion of the dimethyl ether skeleton.en_US
