In: Chemical Communications (Cambridge), (1998) ; Nr. 18, S. 2003-2004
Zeitschriftenaufsatz / Fach: Chemie
The single crystal structure of the ordered phase of norbornadiene was detd. using a new method of growing crystals at low temps., via an in situ technique utilising IR light from a CO2 laser focused on a capillary filled with an org. soln. of a sample that usually forms plastic crystals.
