Abstract

We report the infrared spectrum of the bent isomer of N2O-HF in which the HF subnit is hydrogen bonded to the oxygen. This isomer was previously observed using microwave spectroscopy, while recent infrared measurements by Lovejoy and Nesbitt have shown that a linear (or slightly bent) ONNHF isomer also exists. We find that the linear ONNHF isomer is present under identical beam conditions to those used to record the spectrum of the bent isomer.
