The previously reported nonreproducibility of the intensity of the OH stretching band of liquid water has been explored. It was found that it can be eliminated in measurements with the Circle® multiple ATR cell by ensuring that the ATR rod is coaxial with the glass liquid holder. It was also found that normal laboratory temperature variations of a few degrees change the intensity by ⩽∼1% of the peak height. A new imaginary refractive index spectrum of water has been determined between 4000 and…

Isotope effects in liquid water by infrared spectroscopy
The light and heavy liquid water (H2O–D2O) mixtures in the 0–1 molar fraction were studied in the mid-infrared by Fourier transform infrared attenuated total reflectance (FTIR-ATR) spectroscopy. Five
Structural Change of Water with Solutes and Temperature up to 100 °C in Aqueous Solutions as Revealed by Attenuated Total Reflectance Infrared Spectroscopy
The attenuated total reflectance infrared (ATR-IR) spectra of several aqueous solutions have been measured by using a newly developed heatable rod-type ATR cell and in situ observations of water structures are generally in agreement with the expected nature of fluids within the earth.
Molecular origin of the difference in the HOH bend of the IR spectra between liquid water and ice.
Two factors are identified that are responsible for the decrease of the intensity of the HOH bend in ice caused by the strong anti-correlation between the permanent dipole moment of a molecule and the induced dipole moments of neighboring hydrogen bond acceptor molecules.
Isotope effects in liquid water by infrared spectroscopy. III. H2O and D2O spectra from 6000 to 0 cm(-1).
The infrared spectra (IR) of pure liquid light and heavy water were obtained with attenuated total reflection (ATR) and transmission measurements in the mid-IR and far-IR with new optical properties (n and k) that can now be used as standards for liquid H(2)O and D( 2)O.
Unusual Influence of Fluorinated Anions on the Stretching Vibrations of Liquid Water.
The computational IR spectroscopy based on AIMD simulations is shown to be a viable predictive tool with strong interpretative power in the studies of solvation phenomena in aqueous solutions.
Isotope effects in liquid water by infrared spectroscopy. II. Factor analysis of the temperature effect on H2O and D2O.
The spectra of the orthogonalized factors presented show a decrease of the OH (OD) stretch band integrated intensities of almost 36% from the cold to the hot factors, which indicates that all water molecules in the bulk are made of an oxygen atom surrounded with four hydrogen atoms, two covalently bonded, and two hydrogen bonded.
Water (H2O and D2O) molar absorptivity in the 1000-4000 cm-1 range and quantitative infrared spectroscopy of aqueous solutions.
Questions involved in the proper correction of strong water absorbance in IR spectra of aqueous solutions of biomolecules are discussed, including multiple reflections within the cell, the effects of pH, temperature, and perturbation of water spectral properties by polar solutes, as well as the selection of optimal spectral regions in which one may obtain the most precise absorbance corrections.
IR and SFG vibrational spectroscopy of the water bend in the bulk liquid and at the liquid-vapor interface, respectively.
The theoretical infrared and sum-frequency generation spectra of the HOH bend in liquid water and at the water liquid/vapor interface are calculated using a mixed quantum/classical approach and SFG of the water bending mode provides a complementary picture of the heterogeneous hydrogen-bond configurations at theWater surface.

By analyzing the modulations of electron populations induced by molecular translations in water clusters, it is shown that there is an approximate linear relation between the derivative of intermolecular electron population transfer and the hydrogen-bond length and the intensity of the band is reduced.
