Abstract:

The program of study was undertaken for the purpose of 1 determining the structure of chemically interesting molecules, by means of gaseous electron diffraction analysis, in order to better understand their chemical properties and 2 determining the potential functions of certain molecules by combining the electron-diffraction measured amplitudes of vibration with the known vibrational frequencies. Computer programs for structural analysis were devised, and a diffraction apparatus was constructed. Molecular structure studies were carried out on disiloxane, disilyl sulfide, cyclopropane, diboron tetrachloride, cyclo-octadiene-1,5, 2,3-dimethylbutadiene, dinitrogen pentoxide, fluorine fluorosulfonate. Molecular dynamics studies were performed on phosphorus trichloride, arsenic tribromide, and nitrogen dioxide.
