Experimental determination of the molecular geometries

Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 6)


The metrical aspects of the sulphone molecules are dealt with in the present discussion. They are only one, though a very important one, of the characteristics of the molecular structure. The metrical aspects of the molecule, i.e. its geometry, are determined by the relative spacial positions of the atoms constituting the molecule. This is the same as to characterize the molecule with all the internuclear distances, or more descriptively, with the bond lengths, bond angles, and the angles of internal rotation.
