Abstract
The study of how both steric and electrostatic interactions affect the structure of liquids formed by quasitetrahedral molecules has been undertaken in this work. We have studied trichlorobromomethane (CBrCl3) and dibromodichloromethane (CBr2Cl2), both displaying a dipole along their C3v and C2v molecular symmetry axes, respectively. The short-range order of the liquid state has been determined using neutron diffraction experiments that were modeled through the reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) techniqu...
