Deuteriation of an asymmetric short hydrogen bond. X-Ray crystal structure of KF·(CH2CO2D)2

Abstract

Deuteriation of the strong hydrogen bonds of KF·(CH2CO2H)2 shows no isotope effect on the bond lengths. The only significant change is in the bond angle at the fluoride ion which widens to 128.5 from 116°. The i.r. spectrum shows very little change. Since the O–H ⋯ F hydrogen bonds are highly asymmetric, these observations challenge previous predictions about the effects of deuteriation on such bonds.
