Title

H2 - AgCl: A Spectroscopic Study of a Dihydrogen Complex

Abstract

H2-AgCl has been observed on a Fourier transform microwave spectrometer equipped with laser ablation source and determined to be a dihydrogen complex. Transitions up to J = 3-2 have been measured and analyzed for four isotopologues of the complex containing ortho and para H2. the ortho and para spin states have been included in one fit, a deviation from the typical H2 complex. Rotational constants B and C, centrifugal distortion constants ΔJ and ΔJK, nuclear electric quadrupole coupling constants χaa, χbb, and χcc for 35Cl and 37Cl have been fit for both spin states while nuclear spin-nuclear spin constants D aa , D bb, and D cc, and nuclear spin-rotation constant Caa have been reported for the ortho spin state. Quantum chemical calculations predict a strong bonding interaction and the strength of the complex has been related to reported χaa and ΔJ values amongst a host of comparable species, including the AgCl monomer itself. Bond lengths have been determined for Ag-Cl, Ag-H2 center-of-mass, and H-H and are reported.
