The complete vibrational assignment and analysis of the fundamental modes of 2-bromo-5-nitrothiazole (BNT) was carried out using the experimental FTIR and FT-Raman data and quantum chemical studies. The observed vibrational data were compared with the wavenumbers derived theoretically for the optimized geometry of the compound from the ab initio HF and DFT-B3LYP gradient calculations employing 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. Thermodynamic properties like entropy, heat capacity and zero point energy have been calculated for the molecule. HOMO-LUMO energy gap has been calculated. The intramolecular contacts have been interpreted using Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) and Natural Localized Molecular Orbital (NLMO) analysis. Important non-linear properties such as electric dipole moment and first hyperpolarizability of BNT have been computed using B3LYP quantum chemical calculation. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

Copper (Cu) and iron (Fe) doped zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized by co-precipitation method. The average crystallite sizes of the synthesized NPs were found to be 28 and 30 nm for Cu and Fe doped ZnO NPs respectively. From FESEM images, Cu and Fe doped ZnO NPs showed that the spherical structure morphology. The amount of dopant (Cu2+ and Fe3+) ions incorporated with ZnO NPs was determined by EDAX. FT-IR spectra confirmed the presence of Zn–O stretching bands at 438, 416 and 431 cm−1 in the respective ZnO NPs. Optical absorption spectra revealed the estimated band gap was found to increase for Cu and Fe doped ZnO NPs as compared to the pure ZnO NPs. The photoluminescence measurements revealed the broad emissions were composed seven different bands due to zinc vacancies, oxygen vacancies and surface defects. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York

(Figure Presented) The experimental and theoretical study on the structure and vibrations of 1,3,4-thiadiazolidine-2,5-dithione (TDZD) is presented. The FT-IR spectra (4000-400 cm-1) and the FT-Raman spectra (4000-50 cm-1) of the title molecule have been recorded. The energies of TDZD were obtained for all the possible four conformers from HF and DFT with 6-311G(d,p) and 6-311++G(d,p) basis set calculations. From the computational results, conformer C4 is identified as the most stable conformers of TDZD. The spectroscopic and theoretical results are compared with the corresponding properties for TDZD of C4 conformer. The temperature dependence of thermodynamic properties has been analyzed. Molecular stability and bond strength were investigated by applying the natural bond orbital analysis (NBO). The calculated HOMO and LUMO energies show that charge transfer occurs in the molecules. Information about the size, shape, charge density distribution, and site of chemical reactivity of the molecules has been obtained by mapping electron density isosurface with electrostatic potential (ESP). The dipole moment (λ) and polarizability (α), anisotropy polarizability (Δα) and first hyperpolarizability (βtotal) of the molecule have been reported. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
