Abstract

Theoretical and experimental bands have been assigned for the Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) and FT-Raman spectra of the bis(diethydithiocarbamate)Cu(II) complex, [Cu(DDTC)(2)]. The calculations and spectra interpretation have been based on the DFT/B3LYP method, infrared and Raman second derivative spectra, and band deconvolution analysis. To better assign the metal-ligand normal modes in the spectral region of low energy, the deviation percentage of the geometrical parameters was used, with values from the interpretation of the normal modes of L matrix. Results indicate a planar structure around the Cu(II) cation. The calculated infrared and Raman spectra, based on the proposed geometrical structure of the bis(diethyldithiocarbamate)copper(II) complex, agreed with the experimental spectra.
