Codeposition generation of BeCl in an argon matrix at 12 K: An ESR investigation
Knight, L. B. Codeposition generation of BeCl in an argon matrix at 12 K: An ESR investigation. J. Chem. Phys. 1981, 74, 4256-4256.
The molecular radical BeCl has been produced by the codeposition of beryllium atoms and chlorine in an argon matrix at 12 K. An ESR investigation yields the following magnetic parameters: g âˆ¥ = 2.001 (1), g âŠ¥ = 1.998 (1), A âˆ¥(Be) = 282 (2) MHz, A âŠ¥(Be) = 268 (2) MHz, â€–A âˆ¥â€–(35Cl) = 53 (2) MHz, and â€–A âŠ¥â€–(35Cl) = 24 (2) MHz. Spin densities obtained from the ESR results are compared with a b i n i t i o calculations. The calculations yield a dipole moment of 1.0 D for BeCl. These results for BeCl are compared with BeF, BeOH, and BeH. BeCl, unlike BeF, does not exhibit rotational behavior in an argon matrix.
