What difference does a methyl group make: pentamethylbenzene?


PMID 25212729

Abstract

The crystal structure of pentamethylbenzene has been obtained for the first time with the use of synchrotron radiation, whilst the low-energy spectrum of lattice dynamics, dominated by the methyl group torsions, was obtained using inelastic neutron scattering. The effect of symmetry lowering by the removal of a single methyl group relative to hexamethylbenzene has been investigated, including the role that this plays in the charge-transfer characteristics of complexes formed with tetracyanoethylene.
