Summary of "Vibrational Spectroscopic Characterization of 2-(2,4-Dinitrobenzyl)-pyridine (α-DNBP) in Solution by Polarization-Resolved Spontaneous Raman Scattering and Broadband CARS."

The photochromic molecule 2-(2,4-dinitro-benzyl)-pyridine (α-DNBP) is characterized in solution by a combination of density functional theory employing a polarizable continuum model and polarization-resolved spontaneous and nonlinear Raman spectroscopies. By the comparison of theoretically predicted wavenumber positions and depolarization ratios with the experimental spectra acquired under electronically nonresonant conditions, polarized and depolarized Raman bands are assigned. Specifically, the symmetric stretching vibrations of the two nitro groups in ortho and para positions to the pyridine ring can be experimentally differentiated, mainly because of their different Raman depolarization ratios, which supports our prediction from theory. Compared to the polarization-resolved spontaneous Raman experiments, the vibrational spectroscopic differentiation of the two nitro groups is more pronounced in time-delayed polarization-resolved coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering experiments. Overall, this linear and nonlinear vibrational spectroscopic characterization of the CH form paves the way for the interpretation of future time-resolved pump/nonlinear Raman probe studies on the ultrafast photoinduced intramolecular proton transfer in α-DNBP involving a nitro group as an intramolecular proton acceptor.
