The reason might lie on the fruitful p-electrons of N, O and triple bond, which can form covalent bonds between the molecules and the ion surface, capture H to release the acidity and even join the isatin Schiff base molecules as "bridges" to conform the protective film on the ion surface.
The carbon-carbon triple bond FTIR band was greatly diminished following a 15 minute hold at 37500, indicating reaction was near completion and/or the remaining concentration of triple bonds was below the instrument's detection limit.
Each filament appears as 300 to 500 carbon atoms, lined up in a row and linked together by alternating single and triple bonds, Lagow says.
"3D Molecules Edit & Test" is a very effective app for this purpose as it allows organic and inorganic molecular structures to be built with single, double and triple bonds, as well as cyclic compounds.
The results of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), UV-Visible absorption spectra, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and on-line MS revealed that extensive conjugation has been formed in the PPBN thin films and the polymerization of benzonitrile took place mainly through the opening of carbon-nitrogen triple bonds. The morphology characterized by field emission microscopy (FEM) indicated that the fine, homogenous and brown transparent films could be obtained at comparatively low discharge power.
