Hyperfine interactions in methanimine Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A high-resolution study of hyperfine splitting in the microwave spectrum of methanimine has yielded the following values (in MHz) for 14N hyperfine constants: xaa- 0.898(8), xbb - 2.693(8), xcc 3.591(8), Ca -0.0495(47), Cb - 0*0097(27), Cc -0.0012(24). The localized theory for calculation of the magnetic hyperfine constants appears generally to overestimate Cc by an order of magnitude for molecules structurally similar to methanimine.
