Title: Sub-Doppler infrared spectroscopy of resonance-stabilized hydrocarbon intermediates: ν 3 / ν 4 CH stretch modes and CH 2 internal rotor dynamics of benzyl radical

Abstract

Sub-Doppler spectroscopy of benzyl radicals reveals how resonance stabilization provides for rovibrationally well resolved and relatively perturbation-free spectra in the CH stretch region.
