Abstract

The Raman spectra of phenylmercuric chloride, phenylmercuric bromide, phenylmercuric iodide and diphenylmercury, and the infrared and Raman spectra of diphenylmercury in solution are reported. Using the previously reported infrared spectra of these compounds, vibrations were assigned, normal coordinate analyses were performed and frequencies were calculated using a valence force field. Good agreement was achieved between observed and calculated frequencies. The structure of diphenyl-mercury in solution is discussed.
