SUBJECT: Subjects for Research
There are two subjects that I should like you to think about during the coming two or three weeks, to see whether or not we might write papers about them, perhaps for publication in the Journal of Chemical Education. I think that these papers would in part be review papers and in part be contributions to knowledge.
First, there is the matter of carbenes. I have given you the carbon copy of Chapter 10 of College Chemistry, with a section on the carbenes. Would you look through the literature and gather some more general information about them? Professor George Hammond, in organic chemistry, gave me some information and references, and it might be worthwhile for you to talk with him. I think that you would have a good idea about what aspects of carbene chemistry would be worth mentioning in an article in the Journal of Chemical Education.
In the carbene section of Chapter 10 I have given an argument about the energy (enthalpy) of carbene. I think that this argument has not been published. Herzberg in the Canadian Journal of Physics has given some information, some of which is on the attached sheet. The bond length in the singlet state and the triplet state may not be certain. For the triplet state Herzberg says that if the molecule is linear the bond length would be 1.03, if 140º for the bond angle, the bond length would be 1.07 Å. I think that this means the molecule is bent.
The second paper that we might write is on double bonds with chlorine, sulfur, phosphorus, and silicon, an analysis of enthalpy values. Some of this is in the manuscript. I think that it would make a good paper for Journal of Chemical Education.
