This work is concerned with the assignment of the fundamental frequencies of the three dicyanobenzenes (para-, meta- and ortho-) and their deuterated species using infrared data for the region 4000-30 cm‾¹ and Raman spectra, and interpretations are given for all the observed bands not chosen as fundamentals.
From a comparative analysis of the spectra, together with those of other related molecules assignments have been made for the 36 normal frequencies of vibration of the molecules.
The assignments for these compounds constitute the basis for the interpretation of the spectra of more complex and less symmetrical disubstituted derivatives.
