Determination of a High Potential Barrier Hindering Internal Rotation from the Ground State Spectrum The Methylbarrier of cis-Propanal

The Methylbarrier of cis-Propanal

  • J. A. Hardy , A. P. Cox , E. Fliege and H. Dreizler


The barrier hindering internal rotation of the methyl group was determined by analysing the splittings of rotational lines in the ground state. So model errors are minimized. The assignment was checked by double resonances and a centrifugal distortion analysis.
