Abstract
  • The method of gas-phase electron diffraction is a very useful tool for determining the geometry of a molecule in the gas-phase to a high degree of accuracy. In this thesis, the structures of tropone and tropolone, which are similar molecules that are both based on a 7-carbon ring, were investigated with the method of gas-phase electron diffraction, using molecular orbital calculations and microwave rotational constants as auxiliary data. This experiment was undertaken with two goals in mind. The first was to determine how the addition of the hydroxyl group in tropolone altered the structure of the carbon skeleton from that of tropone. The second was to reinvestigate the location of the enolic hydrogen atom in tropolone, which had been raised in a previous study.
