Two pure rotational R(0) transitions (J = 1 − 0) with different hyperfine structure patterns were detected. [...] Published on 2018-12-11.

These molecules can be seen as chiral conformers, whose two nonsuperimposable forms can interconvert from one to another by rotations about single bonds.

Sensing Chirality with Rotational Spectroscopy Annual review of physical chemistry 69(1), 499 - 519 (2018) [10.1146/annurev-physchem-052516-050629]   Chiroptical spectroscopy techniques for the differentiation of enantiomers in the condensed phase are based on an established paradigm that relies on symmetry breaking using circularly polarized light. We review a novel approach for the study of chiral molecules in the gas phase using broadband rotational spectroscopy, namely microwave three-wave mixing, which is a coherent, nonlinear, and resonant process.

Electron-withdrawing effects on the molecular structure of 2- and 3-nitrobenzonitrile revealed by broadband rotational spectroscopy and their comparison with 4-nitrobenzonitrile Physical chemistry, chemical physics 20(34), 22210 - 22217 (2018) [10.1039/C8CP01539B]   The rotational spectra of 2- and 3-nitrobenzonitrile were recorded via chirped-pulse Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy in the frequency range of 2–8 GHz. These molecules each display large dipole moments, making them viable candidates for deceleration and trapping experiments with AC-electric fields. [...] Published on 2018-08-03.

This is illustrated by a systematic study of the structural preferences of diphenyl ether (DPE)–alcohol aggregates, for which OH⋅⋅⋅O‐bound or OH⋅⋅⋅$π$‐bound isomers can be formed.

This is the first time that the rotational signature of a steroid hormone is reported. [...] Published on 2018-11-06.

The complementary results of vibrational and rotational spectroscopy applied in molecular beam experiments reveal the preference of a hydrogen bond of the methanol towards the ether oxygen (OH∙∙∙O) over the π-docking motifs via the phenyl and vinyl moieties, with an additional less populated OH∙∙∙P(phenyl)-bound isomer detected only by microwave spectroscopy [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-01-1016:53 [PUBDB-2019-00342] Journal Article et al Structure Determination, Conformational Flexibility, Internal Dynamics, and Chiral Analysis of Pulegone and Its Complex with Water Chemistry - a European journal 24(3), 721 - 729 (2018) [10.1002/chem.201704644]   In the current work we present a detailed analysis of the chiral molecule pulegone, which is a constituent of essential oils, using broadband rotational spectroscopy. Two conformers are observed under the cold conditions of a molecular jet. [...] Published on 2018-01-12.

In this experiment the aniline clusters were generated in a jet‐cooled expansion and probed using broadband (chirped‐pulsed) microwave spectroscopy. [...] Restricted: PDF PDF (PDFA);
