The nuclear dynamics of three hydrogen-bounded complexes A···A, A···B1 and A···B2 with different structural nonrigidity (A – p-n-propyloxybenzoic acid; B1 – 4'-pyridyl 4-propyloxybenzoate, B2 – 4'-n-propyloxy-4-biphenylcarbonitrile) were analyzed. Vibrational amplitudes of the –OCnH2n+1 substituent depend on the conformational nature and increase upon transition from the flat structure to conformations with the nonplanar structure of the carbon core. Vibrational amplitudes of terminal atoms of the –OCnH2n+1 substituent for even homologues are less than for odd homologues. Amplitudes of intramolecular vibrations of three hydrogen-bounded complexes A···A, A···B1 and A···B2 were calculated for temperatures corresponding to the crystalline and isotropic-liquid phases. The cyclic dimer of the acid A···A has the greatest rigidity and the smallest vibrational amplitudes.
For A···B1 complex, the core part enclosed between the O(–R) atoms of two molecules is dynamically rigid, however, vibration amplitudes between alkyl substituent atoms increase sharply with increasing temperature and become significant, leading to a violation of the intermolecular order in the system. The hydrogen bond strength, structure and nuclear dynamics of A···B2 complex show that the probability of its existence is small. The A-B2 system may consist of other structural units, for example, a rigid A···A dimer and two monomers B2.
