Abstract

The infrared spectra of the 3-trans and 3-cis isomers of 1,3,5-hexatriene in low-temperature Ar matrices deposited from a high-temperature nozzle or deposited under irradiation of the Hg 253.7 nm light show a number of new bands. Correspondingly, the ultraviolet spectra of the 3-trans isomer observed under similar experimental conditions show a new absorption at 276 nm. Most of these new infrared bands and the new ultraviolet absorption are attributable to less stable isomers which have the planar s-cis conformation [or gauche conformation(s) close to the planar s-cis] about either one or both of the two CC bonds.
