Matrix isolation Fourier transform spectral evidence is presented that documents the isolation of rotational isomers in an argon matrix. The spectral evidence is based on the presence of split carbonyl absorption bands in the spectra of selected derivatives of methyl acetate which do not vary in intensity with changes in the matrix-to-eluate ratios. The results compare very favorably with FT-IR data on the identical compounds obtained in the vapor phase. The low temperature of the matrix isolation experiment (10 K) allows for the observance of rotational isomers not seen at the high temperatures of the vapor-phase experiment (500 K). The presence of multiple carbonyl absorption bands dictates that careful attention must be paid to spectral/structure correlations employing MI/FT-IR data.
