The infrared spectrum of the matrix-isolated phenyl radical.

We have measured the infrared absorption spectrum of C(6)H(5), /X (2)A(1), in an Ar matrix at 10 K. The experimental frequencies (cm(-)(1)) and polarizations follow. a(1) modes: 3086, 3072, 3037, 1581, 1441, 1154, 1027, 997, 976, 605; b(1) modes: 972, 874, 706, 657, 416; b(2) modes: 3071, 3060, 1624, 1432, 1321, 1283, 1159, 1063, and 587. Three different… (More)
