Clathrate and Inclusion Compounds. Part 12. Vibrational and NMR Spectroscopic Studies of Carboxylic Acid Guests in Dianin's Compound

  • J. Eric D. Davies
  • Vivienne A. Tabner


Infrared, Raman and solid state 13C-NMR spectra have been recorded for a range of clathrates of Dianin's compound containing straight chain aliphatic carboxylic acids (formic - octanoic) as guests. The IR, Raman and NMR spectra can be satisfactorily interpreted in terms of dimer (formic and acetic) and monomer (propionic - octanoic) occupation of the cavities. The clathrates containing straight chain alcohol guests (methanol - octanol) have also been prepared to aid in the interpretation of the NMR data.
