CF3Cl···H2CO complex published in Chemistry A – European Journal

Internal dynamics in halogen bonded adducts was studied by microwave spectroscopy of chlorotrifluoromethane – formaldehyde complex.

The interesting chemical aspect of this complex is that the two constituting molecules are held together by a halogen bond. The interesting spectroscopic aspects are the features of two large amplitude motions occurring in the complex: the almost free internal rotation of the CF3 top and the low barrier to internal of CH2O.

All this work was published Chemistry A – European Journal.
