Factors Influencing Characteristic Vibrational Frequencies of Molecules: Intramolecular Effects

Volume 10, Number 3 (Aug. 1956) Page 115-123

Lord, R.C.; Miller, Foil A.

This paper is concerned with the intramolecular factors which make a characteristic group frequency vary slightly from one type of compound to another. The factors which are discussed with numerous examples include atomic mass, mechanical coupling, symmetry, electronegativity, conjugation and bond-angle strain.
