The Use of Pressure in Infrared Spectroscopic Studies of Hydrogen Bonding
Until 1965, the use of pressure as a variable in hydrogen bond spectral studies was extremely limited. There were two reasons for this: (1) the high cost and cumbersome nature of high pressure equipment and (2) the early pressure experiments(1) did not show that there was a large frequency shift with increasing pressure for OH vibrations. In fact, Pimentel and McClellan(1) felt that the effect of pressure on OH stretching vibrations was far less important than the effect of other variables such as temperature, concentration, or solvents.
