The role that model compounds can play in understanding the vibrational eigenvectors of molecules is discussed. Assigning the spectra of model compounds is of particular importance and the individual-scaling approach, that has been used with isolated molecule ab-initio calculations, is outlined. Special emphasis is given to recent work on assigning the spectra of three 5–6 heterobicyclic systems; indole, benzimidazole and isatin.
