Abstract [en]

The microwave spectrum of the energetically unfavored g′Gg conformer of ethylene glycol (CH 2OH - CH 2OH) is reported. This spectrum is dominated by an interconversion geared-type large-amplitude motion during which each OH group in turn forms the intramolecular hydrogen bond. The microwave spectrum has been analyzed with the help of a Watson-type Hamiltonian plus a 1.4-GHz tunneling splitting. The rotational dependence of this tunneling splitting has been examined using an IAM approach and this yielded qualitative information on the tunneling path the molecule uses to interconvert between its two most stable conformers. Unexpectedly, but in agreement with ab initio calculations, when tunneling occurs between the energetically equivalent g′Gg and gGg′ conformers, the OH groups are rotated stepwise through 240° in the sense of a flip-flop rather than a concerted rotation and the molecule goes through the more stable g′Ga and aGg′ forms. The electronic reasons for preferring a long rather than a short rotational path via a gGg form are discussed using calculated adiabatic vibrational modes
