Past Results and Future Prospects of the Far-Infrared Studies of Hydrogen Bonding

Volume 22, Number 6 (Dec. 1968) Page 641-649

Jakobsen, R.J.; Brasch, J.W.; Mikawa, Y.

In the past five years the number of papers concerned with far-ir studies of hydrogen bonding has increased by an order of magnitude. The results of some of these papers are presented in this review. Most of this work is concerned with the assignment of low frequency hydrogen bond vibrations. Since the major problem is reliable assignments, we discuss techniques used in making the assignments and emphasize the past work in which attempts have been made to substantiate those assignments. These assignments are discussed in terms of the different hydrogen bond vibrations associated with various types of hydrogen bonds. The main needs for future far ir hydrogen bond studies are listed.
