An introduction to the relations of classical and quantum mechanics are presented in brief. As is an overview of the instrumentation and quantum chemical analysis performed to characterize the molecules presented in in this thesis. The pure rotational spectrum of 3,3,3-trifluoro-2(trifluoromethyl)propanoic acid, perfluorobutyric acid–formic acid dimer, and tropolone–formic acid dimer were measured using high-resolution microwave spectroscopy. The spectra have been observed using a cavity-based Fourier-transform microwave (FTMW) spectrometer and/or a chirped-pulse FTMW.
