Structures and aggregation of the methylamine-borane molecules, Me(n)H(3-n)N.BH(3) (n = 1-3), studied by X-ray diffraction, gas-phase electron diffraction, and quantum chemical calculations.
The structures of the molecules methylamine-borane, MeH(2)N.BH(3), and dimethylamine-borane, Me(2)HN.BH(3), have been investigated by gas-phase electron diffraction (GED) and quantum chemical calculations. The crystal structures have also been determined for methylamine-, dimethylamine-, and trimethylamine-borane, Me(n)H(3-n)N.BH(3) (n = 1-3); these are noteworthy for what they reveal about the intermolecular interactions and, particularly, the N-H...H-B dihydrogen bonding in the cases where ...Expand abstract
