FT-IR and Raman Spectroscopy and Computation of 5-Methylfurfural
MetadataShow full item record
5-Methylfurfural (5MF) was studied by vibrational (IR and Raman) spectroscopy and computational methods (DFT/B3LYP&MP2). FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra in KBr (at room temperature) were collected. The Gaussian 09 and Spartan 08 programs were used for conformational analysis and calculations of molecular structure, torsional barrier, and vibrational spectral data for the 5MF molecule. The obtained results were used in the analysis of experimental vibrational spectra of 5MF molecule.
