Introduction to Raman Spectroscopy Rodolfo J. Romañach, Ph.D.
2 Scattering Mid-IR and NIR require absorption of radiation from a ground level to an excited state, requires matching of radiation from source with difference in energy states. Raman spectroscopy involves scattering of radiation (matching of radiation is not required). E. Smith and G. Dent, “Modern Raman Spectroscopy. A Practical Approach.”, Wiley 2005, pages 3 – 5.
3 Raman Spectroscopy A single frequency of radiation irradiates the molecule and the radiation distorts (polarizes) the cloud of electrons surrounding the nuclei to form a short-lived state called a “virtual state”. This state is not stable and the photon is quickly re-radiated. E. Smith and G. Dent, “Modern Raman Spectroscopy. A Practical Approach.”, Wiley 2005, pages 3 – 5.
4 What is Raman Spectroscopy? Rayleigh scattering: Elastic scatter Raman Intensity Raman Shift (cm-1) Raman : Stokes Anti-Stokes Inelastic scatter LASER Raman is a scattering technique Slide courtesy Kaiser Optical Systems.
5 Raman Scattering from Molecular Vibrations 2c2c 1 = ( k ) ½ = Vibrational frequency k = Spring force constant = Reduced mass of atoms, m 1 m 2 /(m 1 +m 2 ) Higher vibrational frequency with stronger chemical bond and lighter atoms. Rayleigh – Elastic Strongest Component Anti-Stokes – Photon Gains Energy Stokes – Photon has less energy Adapted from Kaiser Optical Systems slide Only one in 10 6 or 10 8 photons is Raman scattered.

7 Raman Scattering The difference in wavelength between the incident and scattered visible radiation corresponds to wavelengths in the mid-infrared region. An Indian physicist C.V. Raman discovered this effect in This has been considered an experimentally difficult technique for many years; but in recent years a number of advances in instrumentation has made it more available to non-specialized labs.

8 Raman Scattering Sample is irradiated with intense monochromatic radiation usually in the visible or NIR region of the spectrum. The wavelength is well away from any absorption peaks of the analyte. The abscissa in the spectra are in terms of wavenumber shift Δυ between the observe radiation and that of the source, and we speak of Raman shift instead of frequency of absorption. Skoog Holler Niemann, p , 435 – 441.
9 Raman Scattering and Polarizability
10 Stokes Scattering Stokes scattering is, by convention, positive-shifted Raman scatter. Most Analytical work is done in this region. Represents inelastic scattering to a region of lower energy. This means that the energy of the detected radiation is higher in wavelength relative to the laser. The scattered spectrum appears similar to an IR spectrum and is interpreted similar IR spectrum.

11 Raman Scattering C=C, and C≡C, C≡N bonds are strong scatterers, bonds undergo polarization. Symmetric stretches undergo greater changes in polarization, and are stronger in Raman than asymmetric stretches. E. Smith and G. Dent, Wiley 2005, page 6.
12 Advantages of Raman Spectroscopy – Chemical Information Raman bands can provide structural information (presence of functional groups). Raman spectroscopy can be used to measure bands of symmetric linkages which are weak in an infrared spectrum (e.g. -S-S-, -C-S-, -C=C-). The standard spectral range reaches well below 400 cm - 1, making the technique ideal for both organic and inorganic species.
13 Advantages of Raman Spectroscopy – Ease of Use for Process Measurements Fiber optics (up to 100's of meters in length) can be used for remote analyses. Purging of sample chamber is unnecessary since Water and CO 2 vapors are very weak scatterers. Little or no sample preparation is required Water is a weak scatterer - no special accessories are needed for measuring aqueous solutions Inexpensive glass sample holders, non-invasive probes and immersion probes are ideal in most cases
14 Disadvantages of Raman Spectroscopy Inherently not sensitive (need ~ 1 million incident photons to generate 1 Raman scattered photon) Fluorescence is a common background issue Typical detection limits in the parts per thousand range Fluorescence Probability versus Probability of Raman Scatter ( 1 in vs 1 in ) Requires expensive lasers, detectors and filters. Small sample volume can make it difficult to obtain a representative sample.
15 Complementary Nature of IR and Raman Spectroscopy IR absorption intensities are proportional to the change in dipole moment as the molecule vibrates. Raman scattering intensities are proportional to the change in molecular polarizabilities upon vibrational excitation. For molecules with a center of inversion IR and Raman and mutually exclusive.
16 Need to emphasize complementarity with more specific examples.

19 Raman Scattering is Stronger from Some Vibrations than from Others 3N-6 vibrations possible, many have no Raman bands Change in polarizability during a molecular vibration leads to Raman scattering. –Covalent bonds more polarizable than ionic bonds –Intensity from stretching vibration increases with bond order –Intensity tends to increase with increasing atomic number –Symmetry-forbidden vibrations Adapted from Kaiser Optical Systems slide
