Abstract

The phosphorescence spectrum of 2% proto in deuterobiphenyl does not exhibit the splittings that were seen previously in the fluorescence spectra [R.M. Hochstrasser, R.D. McAlpine and J.D. Whiteman, J. Chem. Phys. 58 (1973) 5078]. The zerofield magnetic resonance (optically detected) showed a structure that is most likely not due to hyperfine effects: Two or three transitions were observed in the |D + E| and |D - E| regions. In the |D + E| region the largest splitting is 4.2 ± 0.3 MHz while the splitting between the two strongest peaks is 2.0 ± 0.3 MHz. A neutron diffraction study of a C_(12)D_(10) crystalline powder at 4.2 K could be indexed on the basis of cell paramters a = 7.760, b = 5.544, c = 0.42 (Å), β = 93.6° and space group P2_1/a. It is suggested that this structure is disordered, thereby accounting for the optical, Raman and magnetic resonance experimental results, but the exact nature of the disorder has not been determined.
