Theoretical and spectroscopic study of infrared spectra of hydrogen-bonded 1-methyluracil crystal and its deuterated derivative.


PMID 18447458

Abstract

Theoretical simulation of the band shape and fine structure of the N-H(D) stretching band is presented for 1-methyluracil and its deuterated derivative taking into account anharmonic coupling between the high-frequency N-H(D) stretching and the low-frequency N...O stretching vibrations, resonance interaction between two equivalent hydrogen bonds in the dimer, anharmonicity of the potentials for the low-frequency vibrations in the ground and excited state of the N-H(D) stretching mode, Fermi resonance between the N-H(D) stretching and the first overtone of the N-H(D) bending vibrations, and electrical anharmonicity. The effect of deuteration has been successfully reproduced by our model calculations. Infrared, far-infrared, Raman, and low-frequency Raman spectra of the polycrystalline 1-methyluracil have been recorded. The geometry and experimental frequencies are compared with the results of harmonic and anharmonic B3LYP6-311++G(**) calculations.
