Malloy, Jr.: On leave from Departments of Physics and Chemistry, Mississippi State University, Mississippi State, Mississippi. en_US dc.description Author Institution: Department of Chemistry, University of Georgia en_US dc.description.abstract The torsional fundamental of vinyl cyclopropane has been observed in the low-frequency region of the Raman spectrum of a gaseous sample; although strong, the band is broad and no resolvable fine structure is observed. The overtones $(\Delta_\nu = 2)$ of the torsion are considerably weaker but, as expected, consist of a series of sharp Q-branches beginning at 223 $cm^{-1}$ and progressing toward lower frequency with an average spacing of $4.5 cm^{-1}$. Examination of the spectrum in the mid-Raman region has indicated the presence of two rotamers, the most abundant being the s-trans conformer. A study of the temperature dependence of two pairs of bands has yielded a $\Delta H$ of $\sim$ 550 $cm^{-1}$. All of the above data are being used to determine a periodic potential function governing internal rotation in this molecule. en_US dc.format.extent 136639 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title TORSIONAL POTENTIAL FUNCTION FOR VINYLCYCLOPROPANE en_US dc.type article en_US
