Abstract In this work, the molecular conformation and vibrational analysis of 2-, 3-, 4-nitrobenzenesulfonamide (abbreviated as 2-, 3-, 4-NBSA) were presented for the ground state using experimental techniques (FT-IR and FT-Raman) and density functional theory (DFT) employing B3LYP exchange correlation with the 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The complete assignments of fundamental vibrations were performed on the basis of the experimental results and total energy distribution (TED) of the vibrational modes, calculated with scaled quantum mechanics (SQM) method. The effects of the nitro group substituent on the characteristic benzene sulfonamides bands in the spectra were discussed. Raman activities calculated by DFT method have been converted to the corresponding Raman intensities using Raman scattering theory. Optimized structure of compounds were interpreted and compared with the earlier reported experimental values for studied molecules. The observed and the calculated geometric parameters and vibrational wavenumbers were compared and found to be in good agreement. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
