5 Classical Theory of Raman Effect mind = aEpolarizabilityColthup et al., Introduction to Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy, 3rd ed., Academic Press, Boston: 1990
6 Photon-Molecule Interactions When light interacts with a vibrating diatomic molecule, the induceddipole moment has 3 components:Rayleigh scatterAnti-Stokes Raman scatterStokes Raman scatterKellner et al., Analytical Chemistry
8 Raman Scattering Selection rule: Dv = ±1 Overtones: Dv = ±2, ±3, … Must also have a change in polarizabilityClassical Description does not suggest any differencebetween Stokes and Anti-Stokes intensities
9 Are you getting the concept? Calculate the ratio of Anti-Stokes to Stokes scatteringintensity when T = 300 K and the vibrational frequencyis 1440 cm-1.h = 6.63 x Jsk = 1.38 x J/K
11 Mutual Exclusion Principle For molecules with a center of symmetry, no IR active transitions are Raman active and vice versaSymmetric moleculesIR-active vibrations are not Raman-active.Raman-active vibrations are not IR-active.O = C = O O = C = ORaman active Raman inactiveIR inactive IR active

18 Advantages of Raman over IR Water can be used as solvent.Very suitable for biological samples in native state (because water can be used as solvent).Although Raman spectra result from molecular vibrations at IR frequencies, spectrum is obtained using visible light or NIR radiation.=>Glass and quartz lenses, cells, and optical fibers can be used. Standard detectors can be used.Few intense overtones and combination bands => few spectral overlaps.Totally symmetric vibrations are observable.Raman intensities a to concentration and laser power.
19 Advantages of IR over Raman Simpler and cheaper instrumentation.Less instrument dependent than Raman spectra because IR spectra are based on measurement of intensity ratio.Lower detection limit than (normal) Raman.Background fluorescence can overwhelm Raman.More suitable for vibrations of bonds with very low polarizability (e.g. C–F).
