Up to the present, no Raman spectral data have been published for the deuterated forms of dichloromethane. Pure samples of CHDCl2 and CD2Cl2 have recently become available, and the present investigation was undertaken in order to determine the best set of potential energy constants from the vibrational spectra of all three compounds.
