Abstract

The molecular structures of zinc dichloride, zinc dibromide, and zinc diiodide have been determined at approximately 656, 614, and 580 K, respectively, by gas-phase electron diffraction. The analysis was paralleled by spectroscopic calculations. When the consequences of perpendicular vibrations are accounted for, all molecules display linear configurations with the following bond lengths (rg): Zn-Cl = 2.072 ± 0.004 Å, Zn-Br = 2.204 ± 0.005 Å, and Zn-I = 2.401 ± 0.005 Å.
