The Use of Group Frequencies for Structural Analysis in the Raman Compared to the Infrared

  • Howard J. Sloane


Despite the fact that Raman spectroscopy historically preceded infrared in the study of group frequencies as related to molecular structure (1), it has for many years been used, with only a few exceptions, solely by theoretical spectroscopists for the structural elucidation of small molecules.
