SPECTROSCOPIC MEASUREMENTS ON SOLUTIONS OF ALKALI-METALS IN 1,4,7,10,13-PENTAOXACYCLOPENTADECANE (15-CROWN-5)

Abstract:

The alkali metals potassium, rubidium and cesium dissolve in the liquid crown ether 15-crown-5 to produce intensely coloured blue solutions. In this work we have employed a variety of spectroscopic techniques optical spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron spin resonance (ESR) to investigate the nature of both the paramagnetic and diamagnetic solution species coexisting in equilibrium. The major paramagnetic species are the solvated electron, e** minus //s, and the (metal-...
