Abstract The FT-IR and FT-Raman vibrational spectra of 2,4-dichloro-5-nitropyrimidine (DCNP) and 4-methyl-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (MTP) have been recorded in the range 4000-400 and 3600-50 cm(-1), respectively. A detailed vibrational spectral analysis has been carried out and assignments of the observed fundamental bands have been proposed on the basis of peak positions and relative intensities. The optimized molecular geometry and vibrational frequencies in the ground state are calculated using density functional B3LYP method with 6-31+G(d,p) and 6-311++G(d,p) basis set combinations. With the help of specific scaling procedures, the observed vibrational wavenumbers in FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra are analyzed and assigned to different normal modes of the molecules. The predicted first hyperpolarizability reveals that the molecules are an attractive object for future studies of non-linear optical properties. And also HOMO-LUMO energy gap explains the eventual charge transfer interaction taking place within the molecules. UV-vis spectral analysis of the title compounds has been researched by theoretical calculations. The frontier orbital energies, absorption wavelengths (λ), oscillator strengths (f) and excitation energies (E) studied using TD-DFT (B3LYP) with 6-311++G(d,p) basis set are calculated in this work.
