Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Characterization of protonated formamide clusters by vibrational predissociation spectroscopy confirms theoretical predictions that O-protonation occurs in preference to N-protonation in formamide. The confirmation is made from a close comparison of the infrared spectra of H+[HC(O)NH2]3 and NH4+[HC(O)NH2]3 produced by a supersonic expansion with the spectra produced by ab initio calculations. For NH4+[HC(O)NH2]3, prominent and well-resolved vibrational features are observed at 3436 and 3554 cm-1. They derive, respectively, from the symmetric and asymmetric NH2 stretching motions of the three formamide molecules linked separately to the NH4+ ion core via three N−H+···O hydrogen bonds. Similarly distinct absorption features are also found for H+[HC(O)NH2]3; moreover, they differ in frequency from the corresponding vibrational modes of NH4+[HC(O)NH2]3 by less than 10 cm-1. The result is consistent with a picture of proton attachment to the oxygen atom, rather than the nitrogen atom in H+[HC(O)NH2]3. We provide in this work both spectroscopic and computational evidence for the O-protonation of formamide and its clusters in the gas phase.
