Abstract

original image

Von linear zu gefaltet, einfach durch CH⋅⋅⋅O-Brückenbildung: Ein neues Niedertemperatur-Photoelektronenspektroskop wurde verwendet, um die H-Brücken-Bildung zwischen nichtaktiviertem Alkan und Carboxylatgruppe zu untersuchen. Gasförmige lineare Carboxylate 1, CH3(CH2)nCO2, nehmen für n≥5 bei niedriger Temperatur wegen schwacher CH⋅⋅⋅O-Brücken zwischen den terminalen CH3- und CO2-Gruppen gefaltete Strukturen 2 an.
