Unitary Transformation and “Decoupling” of Excitons and Phonons in ACN
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 243)
Crystalline acetanilide (ACN) is the subject of numerous theoretical and experimental work due to two remarkable features1, 2:
amide groups display bond distances similar to those occuring in polypeptides and
the appearance of the unconventional amide I band at 1650 cm−1.
