PMID 22297035


The FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of 5-chloro-2-(3-chlorophenylcarbamoyl)phenylacetate were studied. The vibrational wave numbers and corresponding vibrational assignments were examined theoretically using the Gaussian 03 set of quantum chemistry codes and the normal modes are assigned by Potential Energy Distribution calculations. The synthesis, elemental analysis and NMR values are presented. The red shift of the NH stretching wave number in the infrared spectrum from the computed wave number indicates the weakening of the NH bond resulting in proton transfer to the neighboring oxygen atom. The first hyperpolarizability, infrared intensities and Raman activities are reported. The calculated first hyperpolarizability is comparable with the reported values of similar derivatives and is an attractive object for future studies of nonlinear optics. The geometrical parameters of the title compound are in agreement with that of similar reported derivatives.
