Molecular polarizations of some phosphonitrilic compounds Arsenault, Maureen A.


A study of the dielectric properties of some phosphonitrilic fluorides, chlorides and chloride-fluorides in cyclohexane solutions was carried out and evidence was found to support the hypothesis that these compounds all have a non-negligible atom polarization caused by low frequency vibrations of the molecules. The distortion polarization of one of the geminally substituted isomers of the compound N₄P₄F₄Cl₄ was measured and this datum was used as support for assigning the 1,1,3,3-isomer structure to the compound.
