Abstract

The microwave spectra of five isotopic species of bicyclo[1.1.1]pentanone have been investigated. The rotational constants along with various centrifugal distortion constants for each species have been determined. From the rotational constants, a complete rs structure has been determined for the heavy atoms. Analysis of Stark effect measurements has shown the dipole moment to be along the a principal inertial axis with a magnitude of 3.164 (5) D. These results are compared with those obtained by four current theoretical methods: molecular mechanics (MM2), MNDO, and Hartree-Fock ab initio theory with STO-3G and 3-21G basis sets.
