Synthesis and Vibrational Spectrosc Opy of 1,1,2,2-Tetrafluoroethane and its 13C2 and d2 Isotopomers
The 13C2 and d2 isotopomers of 1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane (TFEA) have been synthesized. Raman spectra of these new species have been recorded, and infrared spectra of all three isotopomers, including some regions with high-resolution at −100 °C, have also been recorded. Guided by recently published calculations of frequencies and infrared intensities and the new spectra, we have revised the previous assignments of fundamentals for the two rotamers of the normal species of TFEA. Assignments of the fundamentals for both rotamers of the 13C2 and d2 isotopomers are proposed. The anti rotamer is the more abundant species in the gas phase and, to a lesser extent, in the liquid phase and the only species in the crystal phase. Thus, the assignments of the anti rotamer of all three isotopic species are complete and supported by isotope product rules, but the assignments for the gauche rotamers are incomplete. Estimates of the missing frequencies for the gauche rotamer of the normal species are supplied.
