    • Abstract


      The infrared and Raman spectra of MoO3·2H2O are recorded and analysed on the basis of vibrations due to MoO6 octahedra and H2O molecules. Considerable changes in the frequencies of the octahedra have been observed due to strong distortion in the octahedral arrangement. The inactivev6 vibration of Oh symmetry became active in the Raman spectrum. Co-ordinated (aquated) and hydrated (interlayer) water molecules give rise to different frequencies.
