Abstract: Dibromodifluoromethane (CBr2F2), a molecule with a potential four-fold internal rotor, has been studied by the Novick group using high resolution Fourier-transform microwave (FTMW) spectroscopy. This project is based on existing research of other molecules involving hydrogen and halogen sources, including H2 MOF and CF3I. The research was designed to prove that Dibromodifluoromethane could serve as the bromine source for Silver bromide (AgBr) and Dihydrogen silver bromide (H2AgBr) but examining the rotational transitions of its Carbon-12 parent isotopes and Carbon-13 isotopes has resulted in an interesting study of the Fluorine monomer.
