Abstract

A pulsed, Fourier-transform microwave spectrometer has been used to observe the rotational Zeeman effect with the cyclopropane-HCl and cyclopropane-HCN complexes. The molecular g values and magnetic susceptibility anisotropies have been determined for the cyclopropane-HCl complex and have been used to obtain the molecular quadrupole moment magnetic suscepttbility tensor elements as well as the paramagmetic and diamagnetic contributions, and the second momen of the electronic charge distribution. Certain Zeeman parameters along with zero-field rotational constants have been obtained for cyclopropane-HC15N. The Zeeman constants for both complexes have then been used to extract various magnetic properties of cyclopropane.
