Abstract : The molecular structure of perylene was studied in the vapour phase by the sector electron diffraction method. The average carbon-carbon bond distance in perylene apart from the peri-bonds was found to be about 0.010 A longer than the average carbon-carbon bond distance in the naphthalene molecule. The peri-bond length was determined to be 1.493=0.015 A. (Author)
