The Molecular Structure of Perfluorobutyne-2. Critical Marks for the Description of Electron Diffraction Curves


A complete structure determination, rather highly precise because it is based mainly on microwave spectroscopic data and only partly on electron diffraction, has been achieved for trifluoromethyl-acetylene. The present electron diffraction study has led to almost identical bond angle and bond distance values for perfluorobutyne-2 : see Table I. The sample was generously supplied by Professor Henne and the detailed techniques were those currently used in these laboratories.
