Correlation of Infrared Stretching Frequencies and Hydrogen Bond Distances in Crystals
Empirical correlations between X–H≡Y distance R and frequency shift of the X–H stretching motion Δv are presented for O–H≡O, N–H≡O, and N–H≡N hydrogen bonds. A linear correlation is possible providedExpand

Infrared Spectrum and Vibrational Potential Function of Ketene and the Deuterated Ketenes
Infrared spectra of solid ketene and ketene in argon reveal a new fundamental at lower frequency (CH2CO, 438 cm—1; CD2CO, 371 cm—1; CHDCO, 398 cm—1) than any previously reported. These spectra andExpand
