  1. 1.

    The vibrational spectra of symmetrical molecules containing equivalent multiple bonds was investigated.

  2. 2.

    The interaction of multiple bonds is not detected in the vibrational spectra when two intermediate ordinary bonds C-C are present in the molecule.

  3. 3.

    The splitting of the frequencies of the symmetrical and antisymmetrical vibrations of multiple bonds separated by oxygen and nitrogen atoms was studied (anhydrides of carboxylic acids, peroxides, imides). The causes of splitting of the frequencies were elucidated, and a physical interpretation was given. The conclusion was drawn that the force field in one group of atoms may depend substantially on the coordinates of the atoms in another, extremely distant part of the molecule.
