Infrared Spectrum of Phosphorus(III) Cyanide
Abstract:Phosphorus tricyanide was originally synthesized by the authors as a convenient reagent for preparing pure TCN (1). Because of its assumed simple pyramidal structure (C, symmetry) and the ease of purification by vacuum sublimation, the infrared spectrum was recorded in an attempt to obtain the frequencies corresponding to the P-C single bond stretching motions. These vibrations have been assigned to the 650 to 750 cm−1 region (2), however they have been uniquely determined in only two simple molecules, P(CH3)3 (3) and OP(CH3)3 (4).
