Methylsalicylate: a rotational spectroscopy study.

Abstract

We report the free-jet rotational spectra of methylsalicylate, a molecule with a possible tautomeric and conformational equilibrium. In the ground electronic state, the molecule adopts a form stabilized by an intramolecular hydrogen bond between the phenolic hydrogen and the carbonylic oxygen, and this structure is characterized as the lowest-energy form by… (More)
