Abstract:

FTIR spectra of the antisymmetric stretch \(\) and symmetric bending \(\)vibrational modes of isotopic species of CO2 trapped in argon matrix are recorded at 5 K with a resolution of \(\). A splitting of the \(\) mode is observed for the different species in the trapping site termed unstable. Considering this splitting and the width of the \(\) line observed for this unstable site, one expects this site to be larger than the stable one. A theoretical model is elaborated to interpret this splitting. Calculations performed at harmonic level of approximation for vibrational modes in a single substitutional site (S1) and a double substitutional one (S2) in a fcc distorted argon lattice to minimize the free energy of the molecule-matrix system, show the splitting to occur in the larger site. The latter result leads us to invert former attribution of the sites: the stable site is a single substitutional one, whereas the unstable site is a double substitutional one.
