The evidence for benzonitrile (C$_6$H$_5$CN}) in the starless cloud core TMC-1 makes high-resolution studies of other aromatic nitriles and their ring-chain derivatives especially timely. One such species is phenylpropiolonitrile (3-phenyl-2-propynenitrile, C$_6$H$_5$C$_3$N), whose spectroscopic characterization is reported here for the first time. The low resolution (0.5 cm$^{-1}$) vibrational spectrum of C$_6$H$_5$C$_3$N} has been recorded at far- and mid-infrared wavelengths (50 - 3500 cm…

Benzene Ring Distortion by One Substituent. Microwave Determination of the Complete Structure of Benzonitrile
Microwave spectra of benzonitrile, C6H5CN, and 9 isotopic species are reported. Moments of inertia of these 10 molecules are combined to give the rs structure of benzonitrile. The final structure is:
Gas-phase synthetic pathways to benzene and benzonitrile: a combined microwave and thermochemical investigation.
It is demonstrated that C6H5CN is a highly useful tracer for benzene in the presence of CN radical, either in space or in the laboratory, and by inference, that the reaction C2H + CH2(CH)2CH2 yields benzene, along with its high-energy polar isomer fulvene.
Interstellar detection of the highly polar five-membered ring cyanocyclopentadiene
Much like six-membered rings, five-membered rings are ubiquitous in organic chemistry, frequently serving as the building blocks for larger molecules, including many of biochemical importance. From a
High-resolution infrared absorption spectroscopy of thermally excited naphthalene. Measurements and calculations of anharmonic parameters and vibrational interactions.
A model based on anharmonic calculations which predicts the transitions (positions and intensities) involving the vibrational levels populated at room temperature can be used to predict the band profiles of naphthalene (and larger PAHs) at various temperatures, with potential astrophysical applications.

The far infrared spectrum of naphthalene characterized by high resolution synchrotron FTIR spectroscopy and anharmonic DFT calculations.
The data presented here pave the way for the search of naphthalene through its far-infrared spectrum in different objects of the interstellar medium through the use of rotationally resolved Fourier transform infrared absorption spectroscopy.
