The Raman spectra of crystalline tribromoacetic acid (CBr(3)COOH), its deuterated analog (CBr(3)COOD) and a partially deuterated acid (CBr(3)COOD/H) have been measured using Raman spectroscopy. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations have been carried out in order to compare the measured spectra with the calculated ones and the bands have been assigned. The theoretical frequencies are close to the ones of the cyclic dimer in the crystal and this fact implies the "oriented gas" model for this compound. The three Raman active intermonomeric modes have been assigned. An extremely weak and broad (∼500cm(-1)) νOH band for (CBr(3)COOH)(2) centred at ∼3000cm(-1) could be detected. In addition, this band shows relatively sharp submaxima, irregularly spaced, assigned to overtones/summation bands of the COOH group. For the deuterated analog, (CBr(3)COOD)(2) the OD stretching band is centred at ∼2230cm(-1) and shows sharp submaxima as well. In the solid state the tribromoacetic acid consists of dimers while in aqueous solutions the tribromoacetic acid is in monomeric form.
