AbstractInfrared spectra of weakly bound CO2�H2 complexes have been studied in the region of the CO2 v3 asymmetric stretch, using a tunable diode laser probe and a pulsed supersonic jet expansion. For CO2�paraH2, results were obtained for three isotopic species, 12C16O2, 13C16O2, and 12C18O2. These spectra were analyzed using an asymmetric rotor Hamiltonian, with results that resembled those obtained previously for OCS� and N2O�paraH2, except that half the rotational levels were missing due to the symmetry of CO2 and the spin statistics of the 16O or 18O nuclei. However, for CO2�orthoH2, more complicated spectra were observed which could not be assigned, in contrast with OCS� and N2O�H2 where the paraH2 and orthoH2 spectra were similar, though distinct. The CO2�paraH2 complex has a T-shaped structure with and intermolecular distance of about 3.5 �, and the CO2 v3 vibration exhibits a small redshift (�0.20 cm�1) in the complex.
