The Band Spectrum of Boron Monoxide

  title={The Band Spectrum of Boron Monoxide},
  author={Robert Sanderson Mulliken},
IN two recent letters to NATURE (May 24 and 31) Mr. W. Jevons has questioned the adequacy of my evidence as to the oxide origin of a band spectrum which he had previously ascribed to boron nitride.1 In his second letter he reports that these bands are absent from the spectrum of the discharge through a mixture of BCl3 and O2, although the ordinary boric oxide bands are present. This he considers convincing evidence against BO as the emitter of the bands in question. In view, however, of… 
The ultra-violet band-system of germanium monoxide
The GeO band-system, recently investigated by Shaw between λ2989 and λ2441 in the flame surrounding an arc charged with GeO2, has been measured over the larger range λ3319-λ2441 in an uncondensed
Pathways to the polymerization of boron monoxide dimer to give low-density porous materials containing six-membered boroxine rings.
Density functional theory has been used to examine the key mechanistic details of the polymerization of boron monoxide (BO) via its O≡B-B≡O dimer to give ultimately low-density porous polymeric (BO)n
Boronyl ligand as a member of the isoelectronic series BO(-) → CO → NO(+): viable cobalt carbonyl boronyl derivatives?
The first boronyl (oxoboryl) complex [(c-C(6)H(11))(3)P](2)Pt(BO)Br was synthesized and density functional theory predicts Co(BO)(CO)(4) to have a trigonal bipyramidal structure with the BO group in an axial position.
(J + 1/2) squared or J(J + 1) as functional for rotational terms in analysis of molecular spectra
The theoretical and experimental evidence regarding the use of (J + 1/2) squared and J(J + 1) as a functional in formulae for rotational term values in the spectral analysis of a diatomic molecule in
Zero point energy and zero point oscillations: how they are detected experimentally
The zero point energy of a system in a potential well is reviewed as a concept, with some history of the development behind it, and a discussion is given of how it can be detected experimentally from
Half-Quanta and Zero-Point Energy
During the first half of the 1920s the hypothesis of zero-point energy and the associated hypothesis of half-integral quantum numbers remained controversial. It was not until 1924 that they received

Fluid Clocks: Emergence of quantum theory from sub-quantum dynamics
It is argued that any operational measure of time is inseparably bound to the presence of a periodic process in some medium. Since, as first formulated by Einstein's (1905) equation for the energy,


Spectroscopic observations on the active modification of nitrogen. —V
The spectrum of the nitrogen afterglow, as ordinarily obtained, consists of three groups of bands, which we designated as the α, β , and γ groups. The α -group is in the visual region, and consists
