Vibrational spectroscopic investigation, first hyper polarizability and homo-lumo analysis of 2,2,4-tribromoacetophenone

Jeyavijayan, S


The FTIR and FT-Raman spectra of 2,2,4-tribromoacetophenone (TBAP) have been recorded in the regions 4000-400 cm-1 and 3500-50 cm-1, respectively. Utilizing the observed FTIR and FT-Raman data, a complete vibrational assignment and analysis of the fundamental modes of the compound were carried out. The optimum molecular geometry, harmonic vibrational frequencies, infrared intensities and Raman scattering activities, were calculated by the density functional theory (DFT/B3LYP) method with 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The difference between the observed and scaled wavenumber values of most of the fundamentals is very small. A detailed interpretation of the infrared and Raman spectra of TBAP is also reported based on potential energy distribution (PED). The calculated HOMO and LUMO energies show that charge transfer occurs within the molecule.
