Transcript of Microwave Spectroscopy of Complexes

Synthesis of Deuterated Propiolic Acid, C-D Propiolic Acid Microwave Spectroscopy Spectrometer 3 Synthesis of 3 Deutero Ortho-Difluorobenzene (ODFB) SCHS Maria Javier http://www.colorado.edu/physics/2000/waves_particles Electromagnetic Radiation Microwave Spectroscopy of Complexes D Obj.1. Synthesize deuterated Propiolic Acid, C-D Propiolic Acid. Purification with Na2SO4 anhydrous Acetylene dicarboxylic acid monopotassium salt in deuterated water (D2O) under N2 (vacuum distillation) Work up with HCl, dH2O, and solvent extraction with ether Synthesis of C-D Propiolic Acid. Obj.2. Use microwave spectroscopy to detect lines and transitions for the C-D Propiolic Acid. Lines were observed at different frequencies and modes from the synthesized propiolic acid. Some Spectral Frequencies of C-D Propiolic Acid Day 3 Day 2 Day 1 Spectrometer 3 Assembly and Testing Troubleshooting continued
