Infrared Spectra of Deuterated Solvents

Numerous studies have been made on the effect of solvents on the it frequency shifts of various functional groups (see reviews by Rao 1 and Hallam 2). Solvents of varying polarities are used and it has been found that there is some correlation between the dielectric constant of the solvent and the frequency shifts3–5 These studies are often limited by the strong it absorption of the solvents in various regions.
