  • THE Raman spectrum of heavy water has been obtained by 2536 excitation of 8 c.c. of 18 per cent heavy water in a quartz tube 35 cm. in length in contact with a quartz mercury vacuum tube. Two Raman bands were obtained with an intensity ratio of one to four, the new one having a mean wavelength of 2713 A. due to water molecules containing one atom of heavy hydrogen. The frequency difference was 2577, against 3420 for ordinary water. Cross and Van Vleck (J. Chem. Phys., June) have calculated a… CONTINUE READING
