Abstract

As demonstrated in recent years, polyynic nitriles may photochemically arise from smaller unsaturated chain species in an apparently rigid environment of a cryogenic rare gas matrix. Here I summarize the highlights of respective research that has advanced the spectroscopic description of R–(C≡C)n–C≡N molecules (R = H, CN or CH3).

Key words: cyanopolyyne, cryogenic matrix isolation, phosphorescence, infrared spectroscopy.
