Abstract

The rotational spectra of cyclobutanone-water (CY-W), dimethoxymethane-water (DMM-W) and dimethylether-water (DME-W) complexes have been recorded by molecular beam Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy and free jet millimeter-wave absorption spectroscopy. The study of several isotopomers of the molecules provided detailed information on the structure of the intramolecular hydrogen bond. In all cases the water molecule acts as a proton donor forming a bond with the sp2 (CY) or sp3 (DMM and DME) lone pair of the oxygen atom in the keton or ether molecule. A secondary CH•••O type interaction contribute to the stabilization of the DMM-W complex (see figure). Internal dynamic features characterize the spectra of DME-W and DMM-W complexes. In DME-W all rotational transitions are splitted as a consequence of the tunnelling motion of the water between the two equivalent oxygen lone pair. In DMM-W complex the splitting due to the internal rotation of the two methyl groups has been resolved.
