Abstract : The research involved (1) a number of technical improvements in infrared and Raman measurements, and (2) the application of these methods to a variety of problems including the determirnation of the molecular structural and dynamic constants of small molecules, vibrational band intensities and their significance, and intermolecular forces and interactions including solvent effects. The infrared measurements were carried out with both medium and high resolution, and were extended where relevant to the longer wavelength range 500 - 50 cm. The subjects examined and the main results obtained are summarized. A list of publications which have already appeared on the work is given at the end of the report, but much of the work is still being evaluated in detail and prepared for later publication. During the period covered by this report, about 80 bands of methyl and deuteromethyl halides were analysed.
