The microwave spectra and the metal-hydrogen bond lengths for the C 5H 5Mo(CO) 3H and C 5H 5W(CO) 3H complexes were analyzed. The sample was heated to produce vapor pressure before pulsing of the sample into the microwave cavity. Measurement of rotational frequencies in the range of 4-12 GHz were performed using a pulsed beam fourier transform microwave spectrometer. Result shows that the Mo-H value is in good agreement with the x ray and neutron diffraction studies of similar complexes.
