Abstract : VAN DER Waals (VDW) clusters of aromatic solutes with various solvents are studied in the gas phase using supersonic molecular jet spectroscopy. Calculations involving ground state cluster binding energy, geometry, and intermolecular vibrational structure are also presented to complement the experiments. The analyses include: spectroscopic studies and theoretical modeling of the intermolecular vibrational structure are also presented to complement the experiments. The analyses include: spectroscopic studies and theoretical modeling of the intermolecular vibronic structure of benzene solvated by argon, methane, water, and ammonia; spectroscopic studies and theoretical modeling of the intermolecular vibronic torsional structure in benzene solvated by methane, deuteromethane, and carbon tetrafluoride; solvation of pyrazine and pyrimidine by both small hydrocarbon and hydrogen bonding solvents; the study of pyrazine and pyrimidine dimers; and the solvation of macrocycles such as free base phthalocyanine (H2Pc) and magnesium phthalocyanine (MgPc) by small hydrocarbon solvents, hydrogen bonding solvents, and carbon dioxide.
