Vibrating quicksilver: The IR spectra of n-propyl-, isopropyl-, n-butyl-, and 3-butenylmercury hydride are provided for the first time, together with an analysis of their structure and stability. Comparison of the experimental and theoretical results allows the assignment of the vibrational modes of the hydrides, despite the low intrinsic stability of some of the derivatives investigated.
