For this reason, the method is limited to systems that are not highly strained. Since virtually no vibrational information exists for bicyclic molecules, we have undertaken investigations on a series of these hydrocarbons with the goal both of understanding their spectra and of determining a suitable potential function for use in the conformational calculation of strained systems. In the present study we discuss the infrared and Raman spectra of norbornane and nor-bornadiene (strain energies of 18.4 and 29.0 kcal/mole, respectively) and present a valence force field for assessing the consistency of the vibrational assignment. en_US dc.format.extent 163411 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INTERPRETATION OF THE VIBRATIONAL SPECTRA OF STRAINED BICYCLIC RING SYSTEMS: NORBORNANE AND NORBORNADIENE en_US dc.type article en_US
