Abstract : From measurements of its vibrational spectrum and electron diffraction, the heat capacity, enthalpy, free energy and entropy of nitrotrichloromethane as an ideal gas have been calculated at a pressure of one atm. and for one hundred degree intervals over the range 200 to 700 K. The calculation was based on a rigid rotator, simple harmonic oscillator model. Motion of the symmetric top about the carbon nitrogen axis adds a free internal rotation contribution to the thermodynamic properties. (Author)
