Abstract The optimized molecular structure, vibrational frequencies, corresponding vibrational assignments of (E)-5-benzylidene-2-thioxothiazolidine-4-one (E5BTTO) have been investigated experimentally and theoretically based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) approach. The FT-Raman and FT-IR spectra of E5BTTO were recorded in solid phase. Theoretical calculations were performed at the DFT level using the Gaussian 03 program. The experimental bands were assigned and characterized on the basis of the scaled theoretical wavenumber by their Total Energy Distribution (TED). The results of the calculation were applied to simulate infrared and raman spectra of the title compound which showed good agreement with the observed spectra. The calculated HOMO and LUMO energies show that charge transfer occur within the molecule. Stability arising from hyperconjugative interactions leading to its NLO activity and charge delocalization were analyzed using Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) analysis. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier B.V.
