Interactions between alkanes and aromatic molecules: a rotational study of pyridine–methane

Author affiliations

Abstract

The rotational spectrum of the adduct pyridine–methane shows that methane links to an aromatic molecule apparently through a C–H⋯π weak hydrogen bond. The shape and the internal dynamics behaviour of this complex are very similar to that of the van der Waals complexes involving aromatic molecules with rare gases.
