FTIR study of 2-fluoroethanol in solid neon shows that, contrary to some previous reports, only the Gg′ and Tt conformers can be trapped. Infrared irradiation in either OH or CH stretching region results in a very efficient conversion of the initially present Gg′ form into the higher energy Tt conformers. The overall isomerization rate is essentially unchanged by deuteration of the OH group.
