Abstract

The sodium trimer, Na3, has been prepared in adamantane and its EPR spectrum recorded from 4 to 170 K. It has three magnetically equivalent Na nuclei with magnetic parameters a 23 = 93.6 ± 0.3 G and g = 2.0027 ± 0.0003. These parameters are similar to those for pseudorotating Na3 in argon. It has a “normal” spectrum with no evidence for an alternating linewidth effect or dynamic frequency shifts. This suggests that the correlation time, τc, is faster in adamantane than it is in argon.
