2 Alkaline Earth Dihalides Be and Mg dihalides are linear Ca and Sr dihalides may be either linear or bent Ba species are always bent VSEPR model predicts a linear structure; sd hybridization invoked 2 “The prediction, verification, and explanation of the unexpected bent structure of some alkaline earth dihalides and dihydrides pose extreme demands on experiment and theory and qualify among ‘the most intriguing problems of modern inorganic chemistry’. It must have come as a real surprise when Klemperer et al. showed that CaF 2, SrF 2, SrCl 2, and all barium halides display permanent dipoles in the gas phase and are therefore bent.” von Szentpaly, JPC A106, (2002)

5 MgF 2 spectra recorded at University of Waterloo with Bruker IFS 120 HR Fourier transform spectrometer. Solid MgF 2 powder was heated in a tube furnace to 1675°C. Resolution was 0.01 cm -1 for cm -1 region.

15 Conclusion  The first high resolution infrared emission spectra of MgF 2 were analyzed.  Assignments were made for the ν 3 fundamental mode and one hot band with the help of high level ab initio calculations.  Recording spectra with a higher signal-to-noise ratio might help, but the lines will remain overlapped, and assignments challenging. 15
