Title
C-H bonds with a positive dipole gradient can form blue-shifting hydrogen bonds: the complex of halothane with methyl fluoride
Author
Abstract
The complex of halothane (CF3CBrClH) with ([D3])methyl fluoride is investigated theoretically by means of ab initio calculations at the MP2/6-311++G(d,p) level and experimentally by infrared spectroscopy of solutions in liquid krypton. The complexation energy is calculated to be -12.5 kJ mol-1. The dipole moment of halothane monomer as a function of the CH stretching coordinate is calculated with different methodologies and the value of (/Q1)0 is found to be positive. In the spectra, formation of a 1:1 complex is observed. The standard complexation enthalpy is measured to be -8.4(2) kJ mol-1. The CH stretching vibration of halothane shows a blueshift of +15.4 cm-1 on complexation, and its infrared intensity ratio complex/monomer is found to be 1.39(7). The frequency shift is analyzed by a Morokuma analysis, and the infrared intensities are rationalized by using a model which includes the mechanical and electrical anharmonicity of the CH stretching vibration.
