X-Band electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) studies of VO2+ ions in l-asparagine monohydrate single crystals have been done at room temperature. Detailed EPR analysis indicates the presence of two magnetically inequivalent VO2+ sites. Both the vanadyl complexes are found to take up interstitial position. The angular variation of the EPR spectra in three planes ab, bc and ca are used to determine principal g and A tensors. For the two sites the spin Hamiltonian parameters are, site I: gx = 1.9633, gy = 2.0274, gz = 1.9797, Ax = 88, Ay = 61, Az = 161 × 10−4 cm−1; site II: gx = 1.9627, gy = 1.9880, gz = 1.9425, Ax = 90, Ay = 66, Az = 167 × 10−4 cm−1. The optical absorption study is also carried out at room temperature and absorption bands are assigned to various transitions. The theoretical band positions are obtained using energy expressions and a good agreement is found with the experimental values. By correlating EPR and optical data different molecular orbital coefficients are evaluated and the nature of bonding in the crystal is discussed.
