The experimental observations are complicated by the possibility of Fermi resonance with the overtone of $CH_{2}$ deformation vibrations. Recent work on the melting of hydrocarbon chains in phospholipids has led to a reexamination of these assignments. While force field calculations appear to show that there is only a very small amount of coupling between C-H stretching vibrations on adjacent carbons, the experimental results, when one includes both infrared and Raman spectra and when one further examines both all trans and trans-gauche segments for the same molecule, lead to a different conclusion. This is particularly true for the asymmetric $CH_{2}$ stretches, which are seen to extend from 2875 to $2930 cm^{-1}$. The conclusions will be substantiated through a series of infrared and Raman difference spectra. en_US dc.format.extent 122868 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title CONCERNING THE ASSIGNMENT OF METHYLENE STRETCHING VIBRATIONS IN HYDROCARBONS en_US dc.type article en_US
